There is never a bad time to wear stripes, but lately I am in need of donning casual, playful tops that are awash in stripes. An aura of the shoulder seasons tends to dance in my mind when I imagine regularly selecting the stripes in my wardrobe, especially the tops for my everyday ensembles.

A stripe top communicates an effortless chic look that neither mutes or elevates out of bounds the entire outfit. Paired with denim, a full skirt or worn under a shearling coat, stripes are simple, sophisticated and friendly to many shapes.

  1. The wrist detail on that first one is so subtle yet it really sets that shirt apart.
    Stripes play well with florals, non-related solids (a blue/white Breton shirt with fuchsia pants, for example), even some patterns.

  2. I love stripes (and polka dots for that matter!). I think they have a sense of youth to them. I agree with Taste of France in regards to the wrist detail – lovely!
