Striped Sweatshirt

I wear this shirt an embarrassing amount. I have a hard time saying no to any striped shirt but this one has just the right amount of slouch, weight and the sweatshirt shape is really au courant. It's also just long enough - hitting mid-hip. It's so perfect.

I know these aren't groundbreaking outfits, but I am trying to get more basics into my wardrobe and I hope maybe you'll get some inspiration too!

 

The easiest pattern mix - stripes and leopard. A swipe of red lipstick (this is a very wearable bright red for cool skin tones) and gold cuff dress it up but the worn jeans bring it back to day.

Target top, necklace (pretty alternative), Casio watch, Loeffler Randall flats (different color), Gap pants
 

A very gamine outfit. I added a large rubber men's watch to keep things from getting too sweet.

 
Are you guys feeling wide legged pants again too? I'm not totally ready to give up the skinnies but I find myself reaching for a more relaxed pant more and more often. I matched the lipstick to the necklace. I like pulling a color from my outfit and putting it into my makeup, using navy liner instead would also work. I'm going to wear this to an upcoming parent-teacher conference - it's pulled-together but not overdressed.
 
Target top, thrifted scarf, Delman flats, Iro skirt (similar, similar)
 

For this last one, I challenged myself to make an outfit I normally wouldn't wear. And since you'd need to have darker skin to really look amazing in it, I definitely wouldn't be the person to rock it heheh. Paired with some teeny gold jewelry? It'd be so perfect for a chic brunch with friends followed by a walk through a new museum exhibit.

Isn't it funny how stripes are practically a neutral these days? These are great wearable outfits, I'd definitely wear them all!

I think "this shirt" is absolutely adorable, and you are very creative with styling it.
