The Updated Striped Shirt



If there was a trend to take note of it would be the exaggerated off shoulder sleeves. Seen in numerous street style shots, they always appear: the unstructured striped shirt. I do love a good striped shirt. The updated striped shirt appears on the Fashion runway this season and it ended up leading the session.

A striped shirt and a pair of ripped skinny jeans are two wardrobe essentials every woman should own. They are also two pieces working every time, but updating your versions takes time. It takes a while to source the perfect style. Striped shirts seem all the same on the surface, but they are also really different. It’s all up in the details. Do you want buttons? Up or down? On the collar? Oversized sleeves? Unstructured collar? What kind of color are you after? Am I going for the knot version? Button all the way or half? Soft cotton or crisp?  Fine or large stripes? Plain or textured? Visible or hidden buttons? Fitted or oversized?

As for the ripped jeans? That’s a whole other ball game.

Don’t freak out on me. I’ve done some research, and to avoid you the trouble, I’ve picked the best styles at the moment. I’m good with you. And yes, the #backatwork isn’t helping, I had some spare time to brainstorm the question.
