Nicky Hilton's Striped Tee, Denim Shorts, and Black Tote Bag Look for Less

Nicky Hilton Striped Tee and Black Tote Look for Less
If there was a signature casual outfit for the season of summer, this would likely be it. A black and white striped tee with denim shorts will never fail, and the ones we found from Kohl's are a major deal at under $20. They also have a 4-inch inseam, so you will be plenty covered while still wearing a trendy pair of distressed denim shorts. A bag can dress up tee and denim essentials like these that you may even already have in your closet, and we love the luxurious look of this ALDO bag - and that it's attainable without being on a waitlist to buy it for the same price as your car!
