The Stripe Edit

June 27, 2016

Hello Sweeties! Stripes are probably my go to style staple when it comes to patterns. Their classic, timeless vibe is my absolute favourite and they just work! Since they obtain over 50% of my wardrobe, I thought that they deserved a post to show stripes a little love. I'm going to share a few of my favourite striped items and how I like to style and match them, focusing on Winter style :)


Stripes are a big part of my style. But what makes them my top style pattern?  They're easy. Throw a striped item on with a pair of jeans and some boots and you look like you've actually spent a lot of time planning an outfit, when in reality the effort of throwing on a striped top is minimal. They're so flattering. Whether it's a loose top or a body-hugging body con dress, stripes do a great job of flattering various body shapes. Plus stripes are just another excuse for me to wear monochrome colours, as most of my striped items are monochrome. I know monochrome can seem a bit boring, but with stripes I think it looks really sophisticated and fashionable. 


I think stripes can have a very sophisticated, business-like vibe, so what better way to style them than on a button up shirt? I mentioned this shirt in my How To Style Ripped Jeans post, and I have been wearing this item a  lot lately. I love how diverse it is - with the right items it can work in both Summer and Winter.

I love T-shirt dresses - they're so easy to throw on and can be dressy or casual, making them really versatile for an all-year-round item. This one has stripes, which is a major bonus! The only difficulty with T-shirt dresses is the sizing. They're the sort of item that can be better to try on in store because some are baggier and longer than your average T-shirt dress. You might end up buying a T-shirt sack online!

Style with: Denim Jacket, and Sports shoes 

Stripe Score: 8/10

Virtually anywhere! 

The classic striped T-shirt, I swear these will never go out of style. At least not in my opinion. They are honestly so easy to style; you can chuck them over under or with almost any item, a monochrome striped tee will look good! The combinations with this item is endless. An awesome item if you want something that really will work all year round!

Stripe Score: 9/10

Do you like stripes?

Stay Sweet,
