This Fashionista is channeling one of my favorite go-to looks: stripes with denim. The classic American laid back coolness of some great denim paired with chic French-inspired striped tops makes for an effortless but put together look. This Fashionista takes denim a step further with the summer’s favorite comeback trend—overalls. She looks both current and classic. Both denim and striped shirts should be staples in your wardrobe as neither ever go out of style. They look appropriate for almost any occasion depending on how you accessorize and the wash and cut of the denim you go with.
While stripes and denim a classic pairing, it can be made trendy and current with different styles and shapes. A baggy striped shirt like this one tucked into a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans like these always looks good; this look can be dressed up with heels and dressed down with sneakers or Birkenstocks. A more streamlined and sophisticated look would be a fitted striped T-shirt with skinny-leg jeans and black pumps.
How To: A striped T-shirt looks chic but laid back under overalls. A cropped T-shirt underneath overalls looks sexy and cute. Stripes are so versatile, too. This Fashionista is wearing yellow and purple stripes, but red and white, black and white or blue and brown all look cool and classic. For celebrity inspiration, look to Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin for their classic 1960s aesthetics and Alexa Chung for her modern take on the trend.
