If you have watched a couple of episodes from this most recent season of The Simply Luxurious Kitchen, you know I like blue, and specifically blue stripes. I think all but two episodes capture me wearing my go-to blue stripe wardrobe in some way or another. But don’t worry, I am not alone. The fall and last spring’s runways were full of stripes – oversized, bold, large, classic, you name it, they were seemingly ubiquitous. And I was ecstatic to see each one.
Yes, oversized stripes are absolutely sophisticated, much like the classic nautical mariniere tops we see each and every season.
Pairing oversized stripe collared tops or boatneck tops with slender pants or bottoms creates an atractive balance and also conveys effortless style. Complete with a simple necklace or pair of simple, yet complementary earrings and a fantastic signature tote, along with neutral flats or heels and sophistication is immediately present.
