The Striped Shirt

Striped Shirt Style Guide

To Go Bombshell

Black and White Striped Shirt

With this basic, try…


      • Embroidered floral pencil skirt
      • Diamond studs
      • Faux fur leather jacket
      • Vintage-inspired bib necklace
      • Lace stiletto booties
      • Small red leather bag

The striped shirt is a true classic. Also known as the “Breton” stripe, the nautical horizontals – made iconic by Coco Chanel – have a timelessness that never leaves us.  This fall finds us in a frenzy for mixing patterns and rich textures, making the striped shirt the perfect basic to bombshell.

Begin with the boldest pairing of contradictory patterns by mixing the stripes with an on-trend embroidered floral pencil skirt. When mixing patterns, stay in the same color palette but feel free to combine with abstract textiles. Continue to layer in even more luxurious texture with a leather faux fur-trimmed jacket, black lace stiletto booties, and a chunky diamond bib necklace. Finish this throwback ladylike look by adding a bright pop of cherry red with a petite structured shoulder bag.
