More stripes please

Ahoi, Loves!

Who said you cannot wear stripes on stripes?

It was definitely not me. Though I should admit at this point, that I belong to the traumatized kids who had to wear stripes in all their facets and shapes. I promised myself that when I grew up, I would never ever go for that linear pattern again.

But my fashion sense was probably not as developed at the age of five or six as it is now I guess. Beside the fact that the horizontal lines are as timeless as the little black dress, they truly does go with everything; even with more stripes. They are versatile and flattering, and so easy to wear.

When I went sailing lately, I could not help but to go for an entire striped outfit in sailor style from METALICUS. Seeing this classic bateau combination on their website I was immediately in love with the modern knit style. The Emmet Tube Skirt in Black&White  has an adorable fitted style featuring side splits and bold horizontal stripes.  I decided that the perfect match to my skirt would be the Emmet Long Sleeve Crew Neck Top with the clean, fitted style.  A universal piece everyone should have as a staple in their wardrobe.

I found my look being simple and basic, yet chic and with a lovely maritim flair to it. But maybe the maritim vibes came also from my Freepeople hat I paired to the outfit. I also added a plain white tank top underneath to the two piece as well as black flipflop from Gaimo.

My beautiful white leather Katia Moto backpack from StickStoneStyle stores everything I needed for the day trip.

If you are not a pattern girl, or even afraid of them, you should really try stripes one day-maybe even this lovely combo from METALICUS– you will see that they are not challenging to wear at all.

Thank you mom to introduce me to this fashion staple, I feel so good about wearing it now being a big girl. 😉

 

White T or stripes-what would you go for as a basic?
