Happy April! I spent Easter Weekend and the last moments in March celebrating in stripes. Last Saturday was National Stripes Day, and that was my queue to reach for my favorite stripes. It’s a holiday created by J.Crew, creator of some of the best striped styles. I was especially stoked, then, to be featured by J.Crew (in the brand’s IG Stories) as one of their favorite ways people celebrated #NationalStripesDay.
What I’m wearing:
Striped shirt (under $20) | Jeans | Loafers | Sunglasses (option)
Need inspiration for styling and wearing stripes? I got you covered. I shared 20 of my favorite ways to rock stripes (see that post here).
Back to this outfit. For the occasion, I reached for a red striped shirt that I purchased in H&M recently. Get this. This shirt is only $19.99. Its subtle details—an oversized fit, drop shoulders, and curved hem—make it appear much more expensive than it is. The shirt seems to have sold out online, but you may have luck finding it in-store. My local stores had quite a few of them.
No surprise, I love mixing prints. For more on that love and my favorite techniques for making mixed prints work, see here and here. Graphic prints like stripes are easy to build upon because they go with everything. Stripes and florals, for example? Almost always a winning combination! I was excited, then, to finally rock my LifeStride Viva loafers. How fun-for-spring is the tropical print on these loafers?
