I own many striped tops and it’s a good thing because they all get worn on repeat. When it comes to the perfect striped shirt that feels classic and cool, J. Crew always delivers, and I am always happy to see the versatility of the striped pieces they carry. I normally wear this particular top with denim, but this time I wanted to mix some patterns so I paired it with these dot-patterned pixie pants. I have also paired this shirt with a navy and white striped pencil skirt for a stripes on stripes look. I’ll admit, when I first started seeing mixed patterns in fashion, I was not a big fan, but I have really come around to the trend. I like that this outfit mixes patterns in a very subtle way….the dots are so small that this pattern keeps the outfit from looking too loud. When paired with classic black pumps, red nails and red lips, I think the outfit made for a pretty classic look.
