I am way over-dependent on stripes—they are by far the most prevalent print in my closet—and they’re so easy to wear, and also to mix with other prints (just remember the golden rule of print mixing and make sure each piece has at least one of the same colors). I think this polo sweater is awfully spiff, and I like the deep neckline.
I know that some of you can’t abide a jumpsuit just from a it’s-just-too-much-of-a-pain-to-go-to-the-bathroom perspective, but I continue to think they’re a great, one-and-done way to get dressed in the morning. I especially like coverall-ish jumpsuits because they’re so slouchily casual, and this one from Alex Mill is so simple but perfect.
I dig the rosy hue of this, and the fact that it’s really well-priced.
The zipper neckline here is just aces, and so is the cropped silhouette.
Here’s one that’s good for lounging about at home, but also just polished enough to wear on the street.
This looks straight out of the Maria Cornejo playbook, but it’s much cheaper.
