I can’t recall how many striped tops I’ve gone through since I learned the power and versatility of this classic print. The last one was a boatneck with long sleeves I’d roll up to the elbow that had a slouchy fit, which I wore to death and cost less than P2000 from H&M. I loved it so much that I wore it dressed up, dressed down, to work, to the beach, to the mall and eventually, in the comforts of my living room when it was no longer acceptable to wear it out. I have a couple of t-shirts, thicker versions for travel and a brown and white one that’s close to my old favorite that I’m trying not to abuse too much. Truth is, stripes are the most democratic print out there that every woman with every body type gravitates to, fashionistas or not. It really is a neutral, wear-with-anything print that withstands trends, time and place. Consider it your best friend, your constant and something you can rely on when you have two minutes to get ready. Here are some of the ways my personal style icons styled the beloved print. Get inspired to wear this staple!
