Don't feel like doing much thinking when it comes to putting together your tonal 'fit? Why not grab a piece that does it already for you. Our favourite way is grabbing a striped shirt with a tonal colourway. This season, blue is totally in and in our opinion, there's nothing more suitable for the Aussie summer! Here's how we'd style a striped button up. Pop it unbuttoned over a white tee like the printed crew neck here, and finish with a pair of navy chino shorts.
