Plus Size on a Budget – Red Stripe Tee

A new post for my “plus size on a budget series!”  This plus size red stripe tee takes on some Parisian flair!

My “Disclaimer”

I want to prevent some anticipated feedback.  So please keep these things in mind:

  • “Budget” is relative.  Some people easily spend $300 on sunglasses, while other people allocate $300 for their annual clothing budget.
  • You may be able to find these items elsewhere for less.  These are just some “budget-friendly” finds I have come across.  And I typically don’t link to clearance items because they sell out and then people are disappointed.  Also, I have no way of linking to thrift stores, but obviously, if you want to check out your local thrift stores, I think that is a great idea!
  • Recycle & reuse.  As with all of my posts, I hope that you can use the pieces you already have in your wardrobe.  Additionally, I assume that you can reuse all of the pieces below in other combinations with things in your closet to create a variety of looks.  Meaning, I think it is unfair to judge the expense of one outfit as though that is the only way to wear the pieces.

Outfit Details

A simple formula: white jeans + denim jacket + stripe tee.  As I mentioned in a previous post, if you don’t like white skinny jeans, switch the colors and wear a white denim jacket with blue jeans.  Easy peasy!

Then add fabulous accessories like this scarf.  Wear it around your head, wrapped around a low ponytail, or even around your neck.  See some examples here.

The sunglasses look like designer shades and the rattan bag is still trending this season.  But, I don’t think they’re ever out of style!

And lastly, add some slide sandals to complete your look.  So easy and so chic!

  1. Love this outfit!! Also those scarves come in another pack of 6 with different similar colors including a red polka dot♥️ Can you find a denim jacket with more stretch in the arms? And stretch in general? Thanks!!

  2. I think I”m keeping these stores in business! The shoes are always a bit of a challenge for me though because I wear an 11N. Those slides literally slide off my feet!

  3. I love receiving your emails! You have such great ideas and the fact that you give us options on prices is just fabulous!

  4. I found a cute, true to size, stretchy denim jacket back in November. Not sure if they are still available but it was a great fit everywhere, including the arms. And Alexa, keep up the good work. You make us all look great with your cute style we look like we know what we are doing. BB

  5. Thank you for posting this outfit. I already have the jacket, shirt and white jeans in my closet. I got the jacket and jeans from Old Navy and the shirt from Ann Taylor Loft. The shirt is a v-neck, but I prefer those anyway.
