There are so many ways to style an outfit with stripes, and create so many different looks! I love using the items I already have and mixing it up with different prints, colors and fabrics.
There is nothing quite as classic as a striped top. Doesn’t matter if it’s a jumper, t-shirt or blouse. It can act as an old favorite or an unexpected mixing piece. It can be the perfect counterpart to your jeans on off-duty days, or a way to make your evening look seem less precious. If there is one thing that I’m sure of, it’s that stripes will never go out of style.
Paired with denim it’s a quick ticket to an off-durty-look and layered under a slip dress or dressed up with an A-line skirt, it’s an easy choice for those nights when you’re going out but don’t feel like busting out anything too fancy.
I paired my striped jumper with a gray suit pants to a cozy work uniform. The pants has straight legs and I love to wear them low rise with Sneakers. But now back to the striped top. As you know from one of my latest posts “What To Wear When It’s Still Sweater Weather” I already wore it quite a lot, because it’s so comfy and classy and it’s possible to style this jumper to every kind of look.
When I have a job as a Stylist I’m the whole day on my feet. So it’s important for me to wear comfortable shoes. But I don’t like to wear every day sneakers. That’s why those pair of shoes are perfect. Because they aren’t 15 cm high heels. Truth is this pair of block heel boots are so sophisticated and trendy in a very retro cool kinda way. And they are the definition of comfort and style. Plus they look great with just about anything, from skirts to skinny jeans to dresses and what not.
To give my look something unexpected I wore again some cool socks. They called “Sexy Socks” and they are made of bamboo. Super soft, anti-odour and available in a range of unique designs, they are the ideal addition to my daily work looks. This time I didn’t use the colorful variant but rather the ones with stripes. Its originality make my outfit stand out.
As Accessories I chose the fedora hat and as well a black and write colored crossbody bag. Crossbody bag is the only way to go for me when I’m working, and I’ll admit, I’ve got quite a collection going. I love this black and white colored compact bag with their long shoulder strap that allows you wear them across your body, keeping your hands free for important stuff like… eating a crèpes with chocolate cream… 😆 . But the biggest advantage is having a fedora hat (if it’s not windy). For a bad hair day could be saved in the most stylish way by adding a cute hat to your daily outfit.
I hope you are inspired by the look I have showed you today, and can create your own outfit. Style is all about expressing yourself and experimenting, so don’t be afraid to break out from your comfort zone and have fun!
