Five Ways to Wear a Striped Top

I’m so excited for this month’s Five Ways to Wear it with my all-time favorite ride or die closet staple item, the striped shirt! If you don’t own one yet put it on the top of your priority list asap! Now I know that not everyone is a fan of the striped shirt and there’s a misconception that not everyone ‘can wear’ this closet staple, but I promise you, there is a striped shirt out there for EVERYONE! Don’t stop looking until you find one that’s a ‘heck yes’ and then enjoy the endless mixing and matching possibilities.

Option #1

Denim Jacket + Striped Top + Black Denim + Bright Shoes (Leopard or Metallic Shoes)

This is one of my favorite ways to pair it up. Just half-tuck your striped top into a pair of black jeans, throw on your favorite denim jacket, and then you can add a pop of color with your shoes, which I love to do. You could pair it up with some leopard shoes if you wanted to do a little bit of pattern mixing or maybe even some metallic sneakers.


Option #2

Chambray TopStriped Top + White Bottoms + White Sneakers

This look is essentially head to toe closet staples. I paired up my striped top with a pair of white jeans, threw my chambray button-down on over top of it and added my Adidas sneakers for something super casual, super comfortable. This is a great casual look that you can put together from pieces that you already have in your closet.


Option #3

Moto JacketStriped Top + Boyfriend Jeans + Red Shoes

For this option, I went with one of my favorite looks from my all-time favorite capsule that I’ve ever created – that’s the French minimalist capsule. I paired up my striped top of a pair of boyfriend jeans, some red heels, and then I threw my moto jacket on top.


Option #4

Neutral SweaterStriped Top + Black Leggings + Leopard Shoes

So this had practically been my winter uniform, a big baggy sweater, my leather leggings and either some comfy shoes or some cute ankle boots. This time, though, I added in a little bit of detail with the stripes in my sleeves and you can also see them here at the collar. This is a super easy outfit and honestly, it’s like wearing pajamas all day long.


Option #5

Moto Jacket + Striped Top + Leopard Bottoms + Nude Shoes (Black or Color Shoes)

Lastly, I’ve got a dressy way to wear your striped top. Pair it up with a leopard print pencil skirt or leopard print pants, throw on your moto jacket and then you can pair up with any neutral heels. I’m wearing nude heels, but black heels would also work with this. Or you could do a fun pop of color with pink or red.
