Winter Styling the J.Crew Bar-Stripe Tee

By now, I know you’ve all browsed the J.Crew holiday gift guide. So, you surely understand, then, why I want one of everything listed in the gift guide.  For now, though, I’ll settle for simply drawing inspiration from the style pages in that guide.

One of the items featured in the holiday style guide is the Bar-Stripe tee, reintroduced in a new gold color.  As a huge fan of the original Bar-Stripe tee, I immediately added the gold one to my holiday list.  I especially like how the gold stripe tee is styled in the gift guide.  Today’s post is inspired by that look.
