A great striped T-shirt is one basic that all girls need to own. There is something about the simple pattern that recalls the fashions of French children playing in their little Breton pullovers. It is a classic pattern that looks good with just about everything. Are you having doubts about that? Check out CollegeFashionista’s creator Amy Levin address the issue in her video about tackling mixed prints for Refinery 29. While the horizontal stripes remind you of nautical themed dances from high school or Hanna Anderson pajamas, I encourage you to think about them in a fresh, new way.
This Fashionista incorporates her striped tee with a flattering midi skirt and a bevy of incredible accessories. Her midi skirt buttons vertically down the front which contrasts nicely with the horizontal stripes of her top. This style has been documented previously on CollegeFashionista as well! Lastly, the gorgeous peachy-tan hue complements her skin and the cool hues in her top. I also love how the A-line shape matches her voluminous hair secured by a headband.
Now, let’s zero in on these game changing accessories. I was immediately drawn to her adorned wrist. The vibrant gold and masculine size makes a bold statement with her feminine outfit. She adds in an intricate knotted belt in a beautiful teal hue to accent her waist and add visual contrast. She then has a chic necklace that sits perfectly at the neckline of her top. Statement necklaces are so necessary right now, so be sure to stock up this fall! I love the ribbon accent; try this Akong one for a similar look. Or if you’re feeling crafty, go to Michael’s and buy your own ribbon and adornments for a DIY project.
