Sartorial Power Player: Striped Shirt!

24 Feb

str3A Striped button up shirt is a classic wardrobe staple that transcends genres and will never go out of style.  I prefer black & white stripes, but any  color combinations will work. From casual to chic, the possibilities are endless when it comes to this sartorial power player. A striped shirt can be worn with distressed denim, luxe leather, skirts, shorts and slacks. Your mom can pull it off as well as your 20 year old sister. Every wardrobe needs at least one.

Scroll down for some ideas on how to rock the striped button up.

PFW Stella McCartney F/W 2013!

4 Mar

With her dad watching from the front row, Stella McCartney presented her Fall/Winter 2013 collection today in Paris!  She didn’t stray too far from her sporty chic aesthetic! The collection had somewhat of a tailored menswear feel to it including oversized coats, tailored pieces, plaids and stripes.  I was not feeling the clunky shoes but overall I liked the fun and funky collection!


NYFW Marc Jacobs S/S 2013

11 Sep

Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2013 collection. I think Jacob’s channelled his inner Tim Burton for this collection.  There was no shortage of boldly patterned pieces with stripes being the main course!!  Every take on a stripe was included, vertical, horizontal, thin, wide etc.  Boxy shapes dominated the modern, yet very 60’s inspired collection.

Okay okay I’m giving in and doing a post on stripes.  I feel like stripes are such a “normal” print that every wardrobe contains but then I thought to myself, if people already wear stripes they probably want more and for those who are a bit scared of stripes they need some cute stripe inspiration…..SO without further ado ……..STRIPES and I’m talking CUTE stripes!  P.S. stripes in ALL directions can be flattering, my only advice is to try stripes on. Oh and I kinda love the nautical look, hence all my navy selections. BarIII brown&black sleeveless dress($44.99)available at Macy’s. Rebecca Minkoff striped canvas and leather tote($195)and self tie long sleeve dress($128) both available at Saks. Pink&beige self tie dress($39)available at Lulu’s.
