I recently discovered a new line Monse out of New York by Laura Kim & Fernando Garcia formerly from Oscar de la Renta. The write-up featured this b&w striped jumpsuit and it reminded me of several other striped pieces I recently came across like this stripe mash-up on a Kate Spade tote bag. It is a modern and graphic approach to stripes.
This Banana Republic midi-skirt in pin-stripes looks fresh for Spring and you can wear it now with tights and a sweater. I featured this J Crew top and coulotte outfit in the Colours of 2016 blog post. Pale blue will be a big colour for Spring and this outfit can be broken up and paired with other pieces in your wardrobe. The ultimate classic and quintissential striped top is the Breton made famous by Coco Chanel. It is the easiest and possibly cheapest way to get that French “je ne sais quoi” look.
I found this Fendi outfit flipping through a vintage issue of Elle Italia from 1993. Stripes are always a good investment and addition for your wardrobe.
Japanese paper does not usually come in what I’ll call plain, linear stripes. I did have this striped paper bag from a paper store in Michigan. So I had some fun shooting the doll.
