The Fourth of July may be over, but red, white and blue are always in style. I got this red and white striped short sleeve crop top at Forever 21 last year for the Fourth of July, and wore it then. However, red and white stripes don’t only have to be patriotic. They can be nautical, classic – whatever you want!
I went classic with this look. I paired the top with a white high-waisted skirt from Express, then white ballet flats from H&M. Both these items are minimal, understated and classic. You could even call them preppy – something stripes are also known to be. Because I wanted the focus to be on the top, I skipped jewelry and wore only my classic silver Tiffany’s double band ring.
How would you make this nautical? Do you ever wear horizontal stripes? Let me know in the comments!
