I like to wear a lot of different prints but stripes are definitely my number one. I love how they are simple and classic but can easily be bold and fresh depending on the size and what I pair them with. I usually go for a breton stripe but every now and then I mix it up, like with these two tops. I’ve been craving lots of stripes lately and these two black and white striped tops caught my eye. I love the fun details like gingham sleeves and a peplum but my favorite part is how easy each striped top is to wear.
I had been seeing lots of people around the office wearing peplum tops and they all looked so cute that I had to get one for myself. I’d tried peplums before but they were all super structured and tended to be too short in the waist to really work for me. I love the easy style of this peplum top though. It’s a great update on a classic tee and I love the small ruffle and slouchy pocket.
The small stripes on this top make it really easy to wear with just about everything- it definitely feels like a tee you can throw on with whatever bottoms are handy. I paired them with some rolled cuff capris and black glitter sneakers because you can never have too much sparkle. This tassel necklace adds a fun pop of color and I love how the texture of the tassels looks against the striped top.
This striped top is definitely more trendy and fun than the other one. I love the wide stripes and the slight boxy fit of this tee. The ruffle sleeves are really cute on their own but the gingham print makes this extra special. Gingham is another pattern that I’ve been loving lately and I think it looks great with the thick stripes on this top.
I love bright pink with just about anything but I really like wearing it with all black and white outfits. I couldn’t resist adding a super bright lipstick and flashy statement necklace to this outfit.
Since the striped top had a lot going on already, I stuck with solid black shorts and sandals to complete the outfit. I can’t get over how cute this top is, it’s just perfect for summer!
