The Continuous Stripe Obsession


So if you follow me on IG you will be well aware of my current stripe obsession that seems as though it's not going to fade way any time soon. I know striped pieces are always in the shops year round, but they seem to be literally everywhere at the moment.. or else they're just more eye-catching than usual. New Look is also a shop that I don't normally go out of my way to visit, but I was so glad I did when I found this wrap-around kimono style top and also a grey/white stripe sleeveless jacket that I have yet to wear. I paired the kimono with a Topshop white cami underneath, Topshop blue Joni Jeans and Office boots.

This second outfit reminds me of something out of the 90s, but I love how different it is to my normal style. The Topshop stripe shirt was actually on sale for around £20/25 and I tucked it into the same blue Joni Jeans. At first, I loved the look of the shirt on the hanger but it took a bit of playing around with until I was happy with how it looked. So I eventually ended up tucking it into the same blue Joni jeans, rolling up the sleeves and adding a thick brown belt and gold chain. I just felt that adding these details gave the outfit a more relaxed and feminine look. 

Lastly, I was super excited when I found these River Island striped jeans (these actually went down to £20 recently in the sale!). To be completely honest, they actually made my legs look shorter than they are, despite the vertical stripes which are supposed to elongate your body. For this reason, I would definitely prefer if these jeans were high-waisted as I think they would have definitely been much more flattering. I paired these jeans with a white knitted top and tucked it in, although in hindsight, I think wearing it untucked looks even better. I'm definitely looking forward to playing around with these jeans a bit more throughout the Spring/Summer!
