In my last Minimal Closet post, I talked about how to find your perfect black denim, this time I’m talking about a striped top. I really do favor my striped tops, and it is safe to say they are my second most worn item in my closet. I love how a striped top can be worn with any outfit ranging from casual, to more business casual when paired with a blazer. The mood also changes based on the stripe pattern and thickness, from airy to moody. I prefer cleaner stripes, so that’s what I’ve featured here.
My favorite striped top is the Drake Tee by Heidi Merrick, you can see it in action here. The stripes are very similar to the slub cotton top above, but the sleeves are a little shorter and it is dark navy in color. I also have a lighter striped top that is similar to the one in the middle that I like to wear with lighter outfits, to the beach, etc. I don’t know that I will ever get my closet down to less than 2 striped tops because I always find myself drawn to stripes and wear each top regularly.
Next time I check in, I will hopefully be able to share a few photos of our finished closet as well.
Do you have a striped top? What is your favorite way to wear it?
