Stripe-tastic + WIW - Broderie & Tweed

Morning ladies I think we can all agree that stripes are a wardrobe necessity & something most of us have in our wardrobes.  It starts with a classic stripe shirt/breton & then before you know it you find yourself with a small collection & instantly attracted to more, after all there's so many variations from style to colour to design!

For me they always look so fresh & stylish & are definitely something that's never going to go out of fashion.  So just to tempt you further into 'clicking the button' I thought today I'd share with you my top edit from the high street this season.  Starting with the above stripe shirt that is right up my street with a stunning frill collar & cuffs & lace detailing.  Perfect for teaming with jeans or styling with a classic pair of cigarette pants but equally ideal for layering under a simple crew neck jumper with the lovely frill detailing peeking through.

This next shirt is a real timeless classic.  For me this would work perfectly with white jeans/trousers or boyfriend jeans/cut offs teamed with a simple tan sandal & classic panama.  The ultimate in effortless style.

Similarly this next top could be styled the same but would also work with a maxi skirt too.

Or for a variation of a theme then I love the ruffle detailing on the sleeves of this next top.

And the wrap over styling on these next two blouses.

Of course stripes needn't be in the classic blue & white or black & white combination, as I mentioned earlier there's so many variations including colour that the choices for a stripe-a-holic are endless.  Like this lovely green & white deep 'V' neck top.

Or this yellow ruffle number that would look great teamed with navy.

Or if you want a variation on the classic with that little bit extra detailing then you'll love this next top as much as I do.

Then of course there's the statement breton such as this slogan one that would be perfect for pairing with a classic blazer.

Or if you prefer your slogan a little less loud then this next one would be ideal.

Love the colours in this next one.

And how good would the sweatshirt below look paired with leather leggings & white trainers.

This next top would be ideal for weekend attire - team with boyfriend jeans, trainers & a biker & you've got a great stylish & practical go to look.

If you're on the look out for a stripe jumper that's a little different to the norm then you'll love the one below.  I must admit this has got my fingers hoovering over the 'buy me' button.

Finally of course you've got your classic bretons but in different colour combinations such as red & white like the one below.

Or if you're loving green as much as me then you might be tempted by this variation.
