Nina Garcia wrote in her book The One Hundred: A Guide to the Pieces Every Stylish Woman Must Own: "The striped sailor shirt is one of those items that embodies French chic." She also insists that every woman should own at least one. I couldn't agree more. What I love about stripes is something Nina identifies- their ability to keep an outfit cool and casual while still adding an element of style. Totally French chic.
So when Amour Vert and I decided to partner on some eco outfit posts (more to come!) a classic striped tee was a given. What I am loving about this shirt in particular is how easy and flattering the fit is. It feels like a modern take on an old classic. And Amour Vert knows French chic. As a San Francisco based brand with #madeinUSA and #sustaiblefabrics credentials, plus a French creative director (Linda Balti) at the helm, their pieces have become basic pillars in many a fashionista's closet. You can stock up on these French girl must-haves too! Amour Vert is offering FMG readers a 20% discount when you use the code GREENLOVE. Merci Beaucoup!

Pairing this striped tee with a high waisted skort and white sneakers feels like the ultimate French girl summer outfit.
