The typical striped tee is reminiscent of French Chic inspired wear and this J.Crew Colorblock Stripe Boatneck Tee is like a modern version of that image. The pop of neon yellow really brings out the stripes and adds an interesting dimension to this shirt. This tee is casual enough to wear on a daily basis and a really great counterpart to other work and school wear. This version by J.Crew is priced at $39.50; so check out the look-a-like below.

SheIn Long Sleeve Striped Dipped Hem T-Shirt

Update (05/19/2013): Just stumbled upon these loosely J.Crew-inspired longsleeve shirts at SheIn. So lovely and so affordable, right? Available in black and blue stripe.

JCP Colorblock Boatneck Tee

The colorblocking this JCP boatneck tee features is identical with the J.Crew tee pictured above. The major difference is the price as this budget-friendly version is priced at $8-$10, depending on the fit. The colorblocking is drastic enough to grasp attention, yet still relaxed that this shirt is not overwhelming to the eye. As a perfect casual tee, you can pair this with denim and other informal garments.

Who would’ve known that a neon green full midi skirt could look so good? I really love this beautiful silk skirt by Tibi and looking at how all these fabulous style bloggers paired this super feminine number to each suit their own personal style I am kind of inspired to go out and shop for a full midi skirt myself even though I always used to think that a midi skirt would be too hard to pull off on my not-model-thin frame. However, there’s no way I could justify spending $525 on such a trendy and experimental piece! Luckily, I didn’t have to. Read on to discover an equally stylish alternative for much, much less.

ASOS Full Midi Skirt in Scuba

ASOS certainly know how to wow us budget-savvy fashionistas, don’t they? I’m absolutely delighted by their electrifying full midi skirt in cobalt blue which doesn’t cost even nearly as much as the Tibi version but is just as stylish as the designer skirt. Sure, the ASOS skirt may not be made of silk, but I do love the shiny scuba-like fabric and highly prefer the vibrant blue color over Tibi’s flashy lime green. So, so gorgeous! Get this skirt now before it sells out!

Stripes! They are everywhere right now! Well, actually, they’ve always been there because let’s face it, stripes are a classic, timeless staple, but this season monochrome stripes are the hottest trend there is which makes me – a total stripes addict – a very happy shopper. Look at this lovely Kate Spade dress for example! The stripe print is so elegant, nautical-inspired and the silhouette is incredibly feminine and especially flattering for the curvy girls among us. However, the retail price for this beautiful frock is a whopping $448 and even the sale price of $291.20 is still pretty hefty!

BB Dakota “Zamora” Striped Dress

When I first saw the Kate Spade dress above, I immediately thought of this just as lovely frock by BB Dakota which we have already featured in our “Style Battle: The Striped Dress“-post a while back. It’s very similar to the pricey Kate Spade number, but, luckily, is so much more affordable. To be honest, I think I might prefer BB Dakota’s version because it is more waisted, a little shorter and just looks a bit more youthful in general. Also, its’ price is soooo much nicer on the wallet. Only a few selected sizes are still available though, so you better hurry and order quickly if you’re still in need of a cute sundress for summer.

Alessandra Ambrosio always seemse like one of those superhumans to me. She’s a super successful supermodel, mom of two, has a gorgeous face, a smokin’ hot body and an enviable sense of style. Ale certainly hit the jackpot in the lucky gal department.

Do you like my budget-friendly take on Alessandra’s casual chic blue and white summer ensemble?
