A striped shirt is a wardrobe essential. Don't worry about the horizontal lines making you look wider, it's a myth! Well, except in photos. But in person, stripes looks flattering and chic. Pair this DAY Birger et Mikkelsen Striped Layer T-shirt ($89, net-a-porter.com) with skinnies and flats or wear with wide leg jeans and platform sandals for a casual spring look.

I bought this top a couple sizes bigger than normal so I can wear it as a tunic with my skinnies. I think it looks great paired with printed scarfs, layered under a denim or leather jacket. Easy and comfortable!
