Yes…that’s my photographer’s shadow. Not a perfect fashion moment, but hey, that’s life. This bright-striped duo has been hanging in my closet since June, and I couldn’t put its blog debut off any longer. Especially since stripes and Summer are made for each other. The cutaway crochet tank and pleated knit skirt are my first Worth New York purchases. It was really fun to work with Lisa, my friend and Worth Stylist, in their airy, elegant New York City showroom. I tried on quite a few things, but in the end loved how these two separates paired up. I think I even surprised Lisa with the look.
When it comes to stripes, sometimes opposites attract. I really love how the wide-banded stripes of this top play off the skinny vertical stripes of the skirt. And sharing the same bold, bright palette makes this colorful combo even better. At least in my eyes! (BTW, the Hubs loved the look. Another nice surprise.) And as great as they look together, I would also wear the top with white jeans and the skirt with a white or black tank. Come the cooler days of Fall, I’m going to try a long white shirt under the top, probably with jeans and black booties. And I’ll pair the skirt with a slouchy black sweater and black booties.
To finish off this look, I broke out my new black beaded tassel earrings and shopped my closet for this straw fedora, mini bucket bag and my beloved Valentino Rockstud gladiators (all in black). Would love to know what you think of this look and how you’d show off your stripes!
If you’re in the greater NY/NJ Metro area and would like to experience Worth in person, email my friend Lisa @ firstname.lastname@example.org. (This is not a sponsored post.)
