Flashback Friday: Navy Striped Shirts


I can't get enough of stripes lately, so I decided to take a look back at some of the ways I've worn these two striped shirts thus far! Top shirt is from H&M, $18 and bottom shirt is c/o MJR Sales, $10. Both are navy and white, as are the shopping options below. Are you a fan of wearing stripes? Which outfit is your favorite?

Tip: if you feel like horizontal stripes make you look wider, try this trick. Layer on a dark colored cardigan and button one or two buttons, creating an hour-glass shape over your top half. This will "cut out" the sides visually, and can actually make you appear thinner.


1. Gap shirt, $22.95
2. Lauren Jeans Co. shirt, $29.99
3. Dillard's shirt, $19.35
4. Gap shirt, $22.95
5. Lauren Ralph Lauren shirt, $29.99
6. Zappos shirt, $35.99

  2. I love stripes, they are kind of a trade mark style for me! Favourite outfit is the one with the yellow skirt, I like the spotty skirt look too, but I never wear spots!  I really need those nutmeg Old Navy shorts you have !!! Wish we had Old Navy in the UK. nice to see a photo of you in London by the way...it's where I live!

  14. I've never been a fan of wearing stripes because, as you mentioned, I thought they would make me look wider. But I love the looks of these outfits so much that I might need to find myself a striped top and try the cardigan trick you suggested.

  15. I love stripes!!! One of my first blogs was about stripes. Yesterday I managed to put both my son and I in striped tops. That was actually quite the coincidence. Love, love, love stripes.

  33. Welcome to the blog! That is the Melie Bianco Angela in saddle. It is not looking so hot after traveling with it for a week. I usually stick to real leather/quality handbags but made an exception and it didn't hold up very well unfortunately!

  53. Wow......wearing a striped shirt today too (mine is black & grey). I love the way stripes can be mixed with other prints as well. I'm wearing mine today with a long black vest, jeans, black boots. When I head outside I'll be adding a black/beige/gold paisley scarf  & olive military jacket. Thanks so much for your continued inspiration!
