Outfit: Striped again


HELMUT leggings
Zara striped top (old)
Inhabit NY cashmere cardigan (several years old)
H&M mini skirt
Prada loafers

This Zara top was my very first striped top, and while I like it, it’s not held up very well (pilling, colors bleeding) and it’s more of a spring/summer shirt. But I’ve been bitten by the striped shirt bug and there’s no stopping me now :) I tried some on at the Gap the other day and I didn’t like the fit at all, and other than that, there aren’t many that I’ve found that I really like lately – that I can afford (if PLAY x CDG was a little less expensive, I’d have a closet full of those…). Besides my new LOFT top I wore on Monday.

What are your favorite striped tops?

    Yay, Grechen! You’ve joined the “Stripes Club”! My faves, like Joanna’s, are from J crew and their factory store, although I find the quality of fabric better at their regular stores. Just curious, what didn’t you like about GAP fit? I tend to get quite a few from them, too. (and sometimes, they don’t pill as bad as my more expensive ones….). Splendid is another fave. And of course, Saint James! (want me to stop now?) ;-)

    I like stripes but don’t have that many in my closet, current count is three after the package I got yesterday. One sweater and tee is from J.Crew and the other tee is from J.Crew Factory. Like buying any other tee, it might be a hunt for the right style/brand. I know I’m picky about certain details.

    I have to agree, Jcrew and Splendid. I recently bought a stri[ped one at Anthro that was ‘lili’s closet’ label but it had a shirt tail hem in chiffon!
