The Best Striped-Tee Outfits Inspired by My Favorite French Women

It's no secret that we love French style here at Who What Wear. Can you blame us? We've already discussed the handbag trend the French prefer, their favorite basics, and their trousers of choice. Now, I'm delving into how three Parisian women style one of the quintessential French essentials: the striped T-shirt. 

One look includes wide-leg trousers and ballet flats, while another involves straight-leg jeans and sandals. Whichever way you slice it, there's no wrong answer for how to style striped tees. But if you're feeling a bit uninspired, I'm here to offer some ideas. I made sure to include a variety of price points, starting at $13 for a super-cute tee from H&M. Scroll down to re-create my favorite striped-tee outfits inspired by French women.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
