Three Ways to Wear a Striped Top

Happy Work Wear Wednesday everyone! For today’s post, I will be showing you three ways to wear a striped top. While I am actually headed to Cabo this morning, I wanted to make sure I shared this striped top before it is sold out! I have reallllly needed this vacation. As you read in my last post, I just finished going through a Chapter 11 Bankruptcy at work. It has been a pretty stressful few months. As you have also seen on Snapchat, I am having some serious allergy issues. Hopefully Cabo will be a great break for BOTH!

Work wear is hard. Most of us just wear the same 7 or so outfits on rotation every week. I think that is why it is more important than ever to have quality pieces that you can mix and match with everything. Examples of these pieces would be black pants, a pencil skirt, a blazer, and then definitely a striped top. Why a striped top? Now, with the mixed print trend, you can literally wear stripes with everything!

Here are three ways to wear a striped top: (Two of these are work appropriate, but the third one isn’t. I just wanted you to see that if you invest in the top, you don’t have to limit yourself to JUST wearing it at work!)

1.Wear it with a pencil skirt.

The stripes in the top are actually navy, but that is the best thing about it. I love this dark navy color. You can’t even tell it is navy when paired with black, but then you can ALSO pair it with anything navy. As you see here, the striped top looks perfect with this black pencil skirt. This is definitely a more traditional work look, like something I would wear at my job in oil & gas. If you have more freedom in your outfits, you can pair this top with any kind of pencil skirt you want! I linked some different options for you below!


2.Wear it with culottes, cropped pants, or regular length pants.

I got these culottes at a steal! They are currently on MAJOR sale. They are perfect. I love the navy stripe along the sides. This is definitely a more trendy look. You can wear this look to work and then it transitions to a great happy hour outfit once you get off! I also like to wear this look to various events around Dallas. It just looks so chic and polished! I linked a few pant options for you below.

3.Wear it casually.

When I packed for the beach I was scrambling around trying to find nice tank tops. This one didn’t even cross my mind at first, but it is perfect. It is breathable, sleeveless, and classy. Plus, as we have seen above, it will go with anything! Pair the striped top with jeans and skirts of any color! I like the distressed look with the polished top.

This is only three ways to wear a striped top, but you can definitely wear this top with about a million different things! The best news? It is only $60! It is sure to be a Summer and Spring staple and you will soon call it your favorite top!
