It’s National Stripes Day everyone, and you bet your sweet cheeks I’m excited! J.Crew is hosting their first ever (100% totally made-up) holiday and I think it’s honestly now one of my top five favorite holidays. You all know how often I wear stripes on the blog, and that I strongly believe they are a neutral in my wardrobe – so I think it’s only fitting that I share my new favorite striped top from J.Crew today! I dressed up my ruffle-sleeve stop with a fun and flirty metallic skirt, and added the perfect J.Crew (and very SAK) touch of a denim jacket, bandana and white sneaks.
I think this is great look for the weekend because it’s comfortable for running around town in, but just dressed-up enough for mimosas at brunch. You can also easily transition this look into a night ensemble by trading the sneakers for strappy heels, bandana for dangly statement earrings, and pulling your hair back into a messy top knot or pony.
I wear my stripes with everything. Whether I’m pairing it with denim and sneakers for a casual day look, or dressing it up with metallics, mixed prints and fun lipstick for a night on the town; I can guarantee you that stripes are definitely SAK-approved and great for any occasion. So, how do you wear stripes? I’d love to hear your stripes story below in the comments, and if you wear stripes today (or stop by a J.Crew store to find your stripes!), make sure to tag J.Crew and hashtag #NationalStripesDay to see all of the fun!
