Sun and stripes…

May 9, 2017

The Banker Shirt: it’s an iconic piece of fashion history, and it has recently returned with full velocity. The blue and white stripes are a versatile and timeless pattern, ready to be styled for any occasion. Whether you prefer a deconstructed modern version, flowy peasant fit, or a classic off-the-shoulder option, the trend is here to stay for a while. You get to choose the shape, the details, and how you’re going to style it to make it your own!

I’ve used this look to highlight one of my favorite things – my shoulders. Especially on a sunny New York day my skin glows against the pale pattern of blue and white. Because the top is so feminine, I’ve added a bit of edge with baggy boyfriend jeans. Chain details make these particular jeans stand out from others like them. And a pretty, simple belt ties the two very different pieces together with a nice neutral balance.

A clean envelope clutch in white makes this look perfect for daytime. Walking around the city in a stacked heel makes getting from point A to point B a comfortable breeze. Switching out these accessories for a stiletto, deep lipstick and embellished clutch instantly turn this ensemble nighttime-ready. If you’re all about the bling, add a crystal choker and some sparkling rings to really take it up a notch. But if you prefer simple accessorizing like I do, this is the perfect outfit for any summer day.
