All of the tops in my closet are organized by color, with the exception of one section because it’s so big. My black and white striped top section justifies all the real estate it takes up in my closet. For years a classic striped top has been a go-to neutral print for all of my clients no matter their shape or style. Try this top. It never fails to create an ageless and effortless outfit.
Stripe With Stripe
Try this. Mix a striped top with another striped item. The pieces can be bold or subtle and so can the stripes.
Subtle Striped Shoes
Try Track Pants
Recreate the Look
Don’t be afraid to mix in more prints like a cool cardigan. When the other two striped pieces are subtle like a sneaker or track pants it’s easy to do.
Use Scale to Mix Striped Pieces in an Outfit
It helps if the patterns are opposite in the sale. For example, a thin striped tank top with a wide striped cardigan or striped trim jacket, as seen in my Emily in Paris Capsules.
Wide-Scale Striped Tops
Black and White But Make it Fashion With a Layer
Bring your basics back to life all year long with a striped top. Everyone should have a classic utility jacket, classic blazer, and leather jacket. You can wear them all with jeans and a black and white striped top.
Black, white and green always makes a great outfit color combination.
Classic Crew Neck
Classics With a Twist
A variety of necklines, silhouettes, and sleeve styles will give you plenty to play with.
Two of my favorite layering pieces over stripes are my All Saints leather Jacket and this Veronica Beard Blazer. A lightweight linen blazer or jean jacket works well in the summer.
