The Striped Top Debate


Striped tops are a staple of any wardrobe. My collection is every growing and personally, you can never have too many variations. They sure do make the perfect pairing to your favourite denim jeans or skirt for that matter. Layered underneath pinafore dresses or worn under sleeveless coats like in today's post, the possibilities are endless. There is a notion that vertical stripes have both a slimming and lengthening effect and that horizontal stripes can make you look wider. Fortunately, I tend to gravitate towards the former so it appears I'm at least doing something right. I've paired this striped jumper with a sleeveless coat and kept things greyscale with these amazing perspex heeled boots. Just look at that heel! I don't think you could find a better Dior dupe if you tried. I have been living in mine as of late and I love that they dress up a simple boyfriend jean and tee combo. At a mere fraction of the price, perhaps it's time for you to invest in a pair to add to your shoe collection. I promise you won't regret it.

  9. Fab outfit!! The boots are stunning!! Just can't decide whether I would actually wear them much though, they are a bit high! Are they quite comfortable?
