Pairing Stripes - Part One

How can one resist a classic striped tee? I am still searching for an answer (or not). All of us have worn it - when we dress up, when we don't, at school, when we run to the store or even the gym. It is a wardrobe essential. A classic.
Pairing stripes is so much fun without having to try too hard (or look like you did!). This will be the first of a three part series where I shall play with stripes. I wore a striped dress with tangerine accents in the past, but, in this series the outfits will use multiple pieces of clothing, so we maximize the potentional of the humble striped tee.
Here's the first look. I call it the Color Cave because the bold colors cave in on the striped tee. While the look is centered on the tee, the stripes become a canvas to the red and yellow pieces. I matched the shoes to the blazer which bind the whole outfit together. Try this look with other complimentary colors - how about fuchsia with lime green, or blue with orange?

Shorts: Forever21 (Similar at J.Crew)
