How To Wear It: Stripes on Stripes
How amazing is this latest image to come from J. Crew. I particularly love the combination of stripes on stripes. The two terribly different patterns completely clash, but that's the entire point. It's such cool way to keep things interesting and to re-wear what you already own with things you would have never considered wearing them with (see: clashing floral prints). I think the brightness of the blue flats pops against the stripes and while they all kind of compete to grab your attention the effect is still somewhat muted. No crazy bright colors means that all these pieces (though all making somewhat of a statement) can peacefully co-exist in one single outfit. Yet again, they hit it out of the park.
