Re-thinking Basics | Why Stripes are a Staple in my Wardrobe

This year I've been trying to go through my closet to get rid of the pieces I haven't worn in forever, as a sort of spring cleaning project. My style inspo has definitely changed over the years, as I enter my mid-twenties!

Lately I've realized I've acquired quite a bit of striped pieces, that have become a staple in my wardrobe, so keep reading for some of my favorite J.Crew pieces and how I style them.

One of my favorite picks right now is this 10 percent long-sleeve t-shirt, because it's lightweight, drapey and the epitome of stylish comfort.


This ensemble is perfect for traveling, a day at the beach or a grocery outing to Trader Joe's. I consider striped pieces to be a basic, so the great thing about this t-shirt is its versatility. Wear it as I have here, with a pair of jeans and flats, or layer it with a denim jacket or chambray

I also love to pair this piece with some denim shorts or dress it up a bit with this faux-leather pleated skirt.

Another super fun striped option, that's perfect for spring/summer, is this cotton off-the-shoulder top. Blue is one of my favorite colors and I'm especially in love with this lighter hue. Pair this pretty piece with a bright lippy or a fun accessory!





















Whether you're a plaid newbie or you've been rocking it for ages, J.Crew never fails to put a fresh spin on this must-have pattern. This bright ocean popover is one of my current favorites and it's another great piece in terms of its versatility! I like to roll the sleeves slightly, pair it with high waisted jeans and partially tuck it in.


J.Crew is running a great sale right now, with 30% off orders under the promo code TIMETOSHOP, so get ready for summer by stocking up on some of these fun styles!
