Bright Stripes

Ask an Esthetician: General Skin Questions for Your Best Skin

I don’t often go for a lot of pattern in my wardrobe BUT stripes are my one exception. I love a striped top so much.

I know they aren’t the most flattering options from times, but sometimes you need to throw style “rules” out the window and major on what you feel GOOD in and enjoy wearing.

I found this bright firery coral striped top at J.Crew recently and immediately grabbed it to try it on. It hits slightly above the hips and would look cute it a front tuck as well. I keep my wardrobe pretty casual so I knew this would be on repeat all spring long.

I’m going on year 2 of my white leather Vince slip ons. I wear this so often during the week, and all year long. They could use a little love around the base (which you can use a Magic Eraser for!!) but they are otherwise in fantastic condition.

Outfit: 10 Inch High Rise denim, Stripe top, Cuyana bag, similar jacket , Earrings, Lip color in shade “Punch”

I’m the same, Kate – I don’t usually wear patterned tops but stripes are an exception. I only have white and black or navy striped shirts, though, and not a bright red one! I think your top looks great on you! 🙂

Wal*Mart has a lot of cute options like this! (JCrew is out of my style range lol.) Love this uberbasic combo so inspiring!

Hmm. The website model shows a relaxed fit and yours looks way more fitted, especially in the arms. I can’t stand shirts with pencil arms. It’s hard to get a good sense of this shirt’s overall fit from two sit down photos. (Nice location!) Unfortunately, pass.

That’s a really cute top and that colour looks really good with your hair colour.

My sister and I seem to have a wee bit of a strip addiction. I never even clued in until one day my sister inlaw said “you sure like stripped tops”. And I replied “I sure do!” 😉
Love your shoes!

I love stripe tops too. I just bought one from Old Navy a couple of weeks ago with similar colors but a thin stripe & wore it on our cruise vacation. Loved it – looked great in pictures too. Go with what you love!

Who cares about what you “should” wear?
Wear what you love!

Hi Kate- I clicked on the link for the jeans and saw that they are the Tencel Edition High-Rise Jeans in Danny Wash from Madewell. Just curious what you think of them compared to the Roadtripper jeans you have said you love before. I am seriously considering buying a pair of Madewell jeans and want to make the right choice! Thanks.

I actually have a breakdown that may be helpful on my IG highlights! Watch those!

Hi Kate,
Love your posts. Just a tip…you can also use nail polish remover to clean along the base of your Vince slip ons. 🙂
