Now that warmer days have taken residence for more than 72 straight hours here in NYC, my mode of dress has officially switched to spring-verging-on-straight-up-summer. I went from camel overcoats and boots to nautical stripes and crisp white denim faster than you can say “overeager.” Happens every year. I blame the West Coast girl in me, dying to get out during the long, cold months of winter.
At this point, I’ve got upwards of eight striped tops in my closet, and counting. They’re the easiest things to pull a look together—throw one on, pair it with a pair of bright white jeans or shorts, cinch a belt around your waist, and it’s instant polish. Super simple jewelry and a good pair of high-heeled sandals finishes the look off.
