Borrowed from the Boys: Summer Stripes
Master the look of wearing menswear inspired shirts while still feeling like a woman...
Striped shirts have been around forever but this season, I love how a few brands have re-interpreted the classic style with interesting detailing and feminine silhouettes. One of the highlights of the SS17 season came from buzzy new brand Off-white by Virgil Abloh. He channelled the movie Working Girl and, in doing so, proved that you can look professional AND cool at the same time. Inspired, I tracked down my favorite striped shirt from the runway and made it my own, wearing it tucked, untucked and tied both in front and back.
Below, I've pulled my favorite striped items of the season. Add colorful accessories like red shoes and a floral bag to add further femininity and a touch of fun. Last but not least, don't forget essential beauty items like a blue eyeliner to make your eyes pop or a bold red lipstick. As a personal tip, if you wear blue eyeliner, go for a nude lip. If you wear the red lipstick, go for a more natural look around the eyes.
