can you believe labor day weekend is fast approaching? it’s t minus nine days and counting. where has the summer gone, gang? and while i’m soaking up every minute of summer it’s time to think about fall. and my favorite season for fashion. while we’re not ready to don cashmere sweaters or knee-high boots any time soon we’ll need a few transitional outfits to ease us into september. so why not reach for classic strips and chinos to brighten our style game while we’re at it?
i don’t know about you but i have about twenty stripe tees folded in my drawer. maybe more. mr. style could never quite figure out why i thought i needed one more to add to my collection… but one of my favorite tees happens to be a boatneck stripe. today’s stripe tee is from J.Crew my go-to store for stripes. and this iconic tee comes in not only navy but six other colors. a favorite way to wear classic stripes is with a pair of chinos. this pair is from Talbots. another go-to store for the classics. it’s a casual outfit through and through that’s fit for a stroll in the park or a sandy beach when the temps cool down a tad.
drape a cardi around classic stripes and chinos for an ootd that will put the prep into your step.
and don’t forget to accessorize classic stripes and chinos with a casual handbag like a tote (old, similar here) in a neutral color.
classic stripes and chinos look perfect when worn together. but don’t forget how versatile each item is. separates can be mixed and matched with other pieces in your wardrobe to come up with endless outfits.
happy hump day, ladies! it’s time to go put a smile on someone’s face, including your own.
