A Wardrobe Staple With A Twist

Like many other people I know and/or follow, I love striped clothes… Pants, shirts, sweaters, t-shirts, bags, bathing suits, you name it! Horizontal, diagonal, vertical; whatever the orientation, I love stripes! I have an ever-growing section of them in my closet, so sometimes I have to stop myself from buying more striped pieces. That was almost the case with this ribbed sweater from Zara. Let’s be honest; the pink flared sleeves got me! They were the definitive catalyst for the purchase of yet another striped item I didn’t really need (but secretly I did, because pink sleeves, hello!). This sweater also made for the perfect graphic combination with this white skirt I got from Style Mafia; I love the extra large buttons and the black stitch details together with the black and white stripes of the sweater. The pink then adds the perfect touch of color which bounces off my red lipstick.

I’m sorry I couldn’t find exact matches for the skirt and sweater for you to shop, but I did find similar styles. I’ve also linked my Saint Laurent Sac De Jour which is the perfect black bag in my opinion, and I linked a really similar and much cheaper version from Rebecca Minkoff!
