STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Seeing Stripes

With summer in full swing, it’s officially time to swap out your trusted pair of blue skinnies for a fresh white pair. White jeans look quintessentially summery and clean. They’re just as easy to wear as a classic pair of blue jeans, but a bit more unexpected. Try pairing them with a classic striped T-shirt, like this Fashionista does here. The winning combo echoes the timeless nautical preppy style seen all summer on the East Coast.

A classic striped sailor shirt should be part of any collegiate’s wardrobe rotation. Paired with jeans (white or blue) or even a mini skirt, the casual, worn-in appeal is enduring. Navy and white are the quintessential classics, but you can try other color combos like navy and red or black and white as well. A striped shirt will anchor your look, regardless of whether you’re going for preppy or trendy.

This Fashionista added a bright statement necklace for a pop of color in the otherwise neutral outfit. A pair of Tory Burch nude sandals completed the put-together look. This Fashionista was coming from work, but you could easily wear this look for a weekend trip to the coast or even a dinner with friends. The look can easily transition from work to happy hour and is perfect for a relaxed corporate environment.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK?: “When in doubt, I err on the side of preppy, especially in a casual but professional work environment like the one I work in. I think looking preppy and classic can look mature, as well as casual as needed.”
