A STAPLE STRIPE #2


If you've followed me for a while you'll know I love stripes. My flatmates soon gathered when I moved in back in September that I'm a bit obsessed with them, my duvet is striped, my towels are striped and many many of my tops are striped. Today I'm going to be telling you about three of my (numerous) striped tops that I've been loving recently.

First up is this long sleeved top from H&M. I think this was around £12.99, and it's great for those days when the British weather decides to be unpredictable throwing us some rain in the now summer season. It's still lightweight so doesn't make you too warm as well as being really comfy to wear day to day. I tend to pair this with black jeans or a black skirt for lectures and my beloved ripped jeans for a more casual weekend look. Next up is this top from Boden which is actually quite old now! This one is different from quite a few of my other tops as it has the colour block of blue around the neckline. This makes it a great one to wear on those sunnier days with it's bright colours. I usually pair this with leggings as it's long enough to cover my bum! Also nice to throw on a long cardigan (us british people always have to be prepared for all weathers). 

Finally we have this simple three quarter length sleeved top from Zara. Moving to Norwich meant that I now have a Zara right on my doorstep which is a godsend. This was a bargain price of £9.99, and I also own the same style top in a plain grey/black. The three quarter length sleeves are perfect for something a bit different and it's 100% cotton so really super easy to wear in any situation. The funny thing is, I've now shown you 6 different striped tops (3 from the last post of this series) and I still have so many more in my wardrobe. 

Are you a stripes lover like me?

  1. Stripes have been so trendy lately! I have a couple of striped tops which I really like! Love the middle one though, the pops of colour are awesome!

  2. I am also a stripes lover! I have a navy and white strippy t-shirt I bought from Forever 21 a few years ago and it is still a staple in my wardrobe (whatever the time of year it is!). I particularly like the first one you've chosen, so I will definitely be on the look out for that next time I'm in H&M :) x

  3. I'm a big fan of stripes as well. I love wearing a striped top under a blazer or jacket -- or on its own!

  4. I love stripes, the Zara top in particular is lovely. I've been looking for a perfect summer striped top for a while and this might just be it!
