I don't typically post fashion ideas from the corporate world, but I have to admit the classic striped shirt has its merits. It is extremely versatile and will add an air of sophistication to any outfit.
Of course, like any piece, it's really all about how you style it. Aside from the usual ‘suited-and-booted’ look, there are ways to put a new spin on this fabulous piece you probably already have sitting in your wardrobe.
If you don’t have one yet, it is definitely time to start shopping! There are styles for every taste and budget both online and in stores!
Below, see 3 ways to pull off a striped blue and white shirt:
1.Wear With Tan
Blue, white and tan together create an eye-catching silhouette. Opt for a structured trousers or skirt paired with tan sandals and tan bag- classic!
*Perfect for a casual lunch with friends!
2. Wear With Colourful Tailored Trousers
Swap out black tailored trousers for a more colourful pair and you'll score far more fashion points. If Fuchsia pink seems too bold for your taste, opt for a burgundy pair instead.
*Perfect for creative workwear or casual Fridays!
3. Wear With a Patterned Skirt in The same Colour Family
Previous clients will know how how much of a difference understanding colour makes in creating stylish outfits and taking risks with patterns. This is the perfect example of how seemingly mismatching patterns work well together. Cool, vibrant colours, mismatching patterns and cascading ruffles make this a winning look.
*Perfect for attending creative events
I hope the above ideas are easy enough to implement and offer a new spin on your existing staple piece!
