Sometimes mixing patterns can be intimidating, especially when it is the same pattern on two separate pieces. However, there is something about these feminine stripes that just make this outfit work.
When I first went to assemble this outfit, I was like “Oh no!” because I forgot that the skirt (although all white) had a striped texture and I thought it would clash with the thinner stripes on the t-shirt. However, I decided to try it on just for giggles and I am totally glad I did. It almost looked as though the two different sizes of the stripes was intentional. Besides, I loved how the feminine details complimented each other, with the ruffled sleeves and A-line flair of the skirt. Plus, this look is giving me some major Carrie Bradshaw vibes and I’m totally ok with that!
For such a girly look, I knew I had to get a equally delicate bag. I found this AMAZING Chloé dupe handbag on ILYMIX for less than $70! That’s literally one-tenth of the designer version! Plus it comes in four different colors! Click here to shop the bag and make sure you use the code “5FEET20” to receive 20% off of your entire purchase.
Also, these adorable pink mirrored sunglasses are from a monthly subscription box from SOL Theory. You can receive stylish new sunnies every month for one low price. Plus if you use the code “5FEETOFF” you will receive 20% off your first box!
Now I am totally crushing on these feminine stripes and I’m so happy that I took the risk of mixing prints that I initially thought didn’t go. FYI-The majority of these actual pieces are either older or were bought at Marshalls (which is not available online) or at the outlets, so I linked a few different options below that are similar for you to shop.
