There are certain outfit combinations that I always gravitate towards, and one of those is denim and stripes. If you ask me, these are both basics that everybody should have in their wardrobe. This pairing is effortless and makes for a versatile look that you can wear anywhere from running errands to a coffee date with a friend.
What I love about these pieces is that they also stand the test of time. For example, I first wore this boxy striped tee in this post two years ago, and it continues to be a favorite of mine. The slightly cropped and boxy fit makes it unique, and the thick fabric makes it appropriate for layering. In fact, one of my favorite ways to style this top is by wearing a white collared poplin shirt underneath. For reference, this top does have slits on the sides, so I would recommend layering something underneath if you’re planning to wear it to work.
And I’m sure you’ve heard this before if you’ve been following this blog for a while, but this denim jacket has been in my wardrobe since middle school (I’m almost 30). If that’s not a testament to its ability to stand the test of time, I don’t know what is! If you don’t already own a denim jacket, go buy one now! It’s definitely worth the investment.
I hope you all enjoyed this bit of outfit inspiration! Are you a fan of the denim and stripe combo? Also, I’d love to hear what pieces in your wardrobe you all tend to wear over and over again.
P.S. Who is excited about Thanksgiving next week? This lady sure is! My sister is flying up to Portland on Tuesday and we’re planning to paint the town red. Make sure to follow me on Instagram to catch some of our adventures.
