Cheap Thrill! Show Off Your Stripes With This Alex Wang Lookalike

Whether its his edgy, deconstructed ready-to-wear or T's cottony basics, Alexander Wang certainly knows the way to our hearts. Every season he puts out some pieces we just have to get our hands on, but while our hearts are gung-ho for a little Alex spending spree, our bank accounts shudder in fear. This red and white striped, cropped short sleeved shirt by American Apparel has the same feel as Alex's, but obviously without the luxe fabric, button-up style, or longer back. But at $32, this is one shirt that will cause you no stress as you're tossing it about this summer. So, save the big bucks for something else... May we suggest one of these?
