Thank you J Crew
for making it
National Stripes Day!
So glad to know so many others appreciate this beloved wardrobe staple!
To celebrate the day
I've gone back through my wardrobe archives
to pull some of my all time favorite stripe looks!
I love stripes no matter the season!
The key for transitioning a bold stripe with warmer pieces
make sure the stripe is of a heavier weight
to balance the weightier textures.
Stripes, brocade, leopard and faux fur can actually play beautifully together!
I often mix in a stripe as a graphic neutral
for an added pop of color play.
Nothing like a classic Breton
to style a whole look around!
I always enjoy some 'good ole' nautical stripe interplay!
Stripe with white out always works
for quick styling!
A knit stripe maxi makes for a perfect beach picnic ensemble!
Some maximum stripe interplay
with three bold stripe pieces!
Sometimes just a whisper of a stripe works too!
And sometimes bold is best!
Pearls and stripes
always two of my favorites!!
I even love mixing horizontal and vertical stripes!
With as big of stripe love as I have
my collection felt like it was bursting at the seams!
I had pulled several pieces out of my closet
but couldn't quite pass them on
even though the pieces just didn't make me excited as they were.
Then it came to me!
Why don't I just take the three pieces of barely worn stripes
turn them into a fabulous new piece!
And that's exactly what I did!
I made my new favorite stripe tunic
with the dramatic sleeves I had been searching for!
My very own ode to my
big love of stripes!!
As always my friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
