Plain T-shirts are essential. And graphic tees let you advertise your beliefs or make a bold statement. Somehow, stripes tend to get lost in the fray. But come spring and summer, you want to have a few on hand. They've got a subtle yet distinct style—from the more classic Breton sailor stripes to the '70s swagger of the skate-influenced styles. These stripes have the power to upgrade any casual look. And while they add the perfect amount of personality to your lightweight layers, they do just fine on their own too. Just don't be afraid of them. Use this as an opportunity to try a bold color choice or busier pattern than you'd normally wear. Trust us, you won't regret it.
