It’s no revolution to anyone that stripes are all over the shop(s) again this season. They always are. And rightly so. Personally my style is evolving more and more to simplicity. A basic tee and solid pair of jeans, as you might have seen in my recent post about the staples of my wardrobe. However one easy-peasy thing I jump to every week, without fail, to liven up my staples is stripes.
Whether it be a pair of striped trousers, which anyone who follows my instagram will know I love deeply, or a good old fashioned fail-safe stripes t-shirt, it always succeeds to liven up a look. It’s a simple but effective way of dressing that the French have been bossing since the 1800’s, and it’s no coincidence that Parisian style is the bomb. Stripes are a classic trend that never goes out of style, and without a doubt I add more and more to my wardrobe each season.
You see, a good striped t-shirt is an investment in the same way that a good quality white t-shirt or a cracking pair of jeans. It’s an essential to any capsule wardrobe and I know I’d be lost without having that option to throw on when I’ve got NOTHING to wear.

This year this boxy Topshop t-shirt became part of my clan and I feel like I need it in every colour. It’s cut in the coolest box shape that’s perfect for my casual style. I think these utility trousers are also very much worth a shoutout as this their blog debut and I think they’re ace. What’s your go-too trend to add a bit of somethin’-somethin’ to a staple outfit?
