all about those stripes

Blacks, grey, neutrals and stripes - these are the patterns and colors that never go out of style and make up the bulk of my closet.

Whether it's navy on white, black on cream or heathered grey - I'm a big fan of stripes. Dressed up or down, they make a great look for work and play. For the longest time, I was on the hunt for the perfect navy and white striped long-sleeve shirt. I've been obsessing over these Saint James shirts, and then realized there were some better and more affordable alternatives.

J.Crew has a glammed up version of the striped shirt with metallic silver instead of white. Their painter boatneck tee is also a good option for a more casual look. This H&M one is the striped shirt I currently own. I loved the body-hugging fit look and the gold buttons on the shoulders so much... I bought two! 

But stripes don't have to be just in tee-form! Stripes can elongate legs when worn as subtle pinstripes on a pantsuit. Or better yet, they can add some fun flair to a work outfit like this Eliza J Fit and Flare dress. For a budget-friendly version of the Kate Spade one that was super popular last year, try Cece by Cynthia Steffe Stripe Satin Dress (found at Nordstrom). It makes a great "work to cocktails" look.
