DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE STRIPE FEVER?!
I’ve been seriously so obsessed with stripes lately and I have no idea why. I just have this feeling that I need everything in stripes. They are so flattering for every body type and make everything look so much more slimmer. From bathing suits to tops, they are all so cute!
Finding Your Stripes
My fave pieces are crop tops with medium to long sleeves, like THIS LONG SLEEVE CROP (literally perfection). For the longest time, I was on the hunt for the perfect crop striped top with three quarter sleeves (yes, I know – very specific). I literally searched all over, everything from ASOS to H&M to Bloomingdales. I started my search thinking I would totally be happy with a little cheap-y top as long as fit what I was looking for. By the time I realized I couldn’t find this top anywhere, I was now ready to pay top dollar for anyone that could furnish it.
REVOLVE is literally the golden source. Not only did Revolve have exactly what I was looking for (and everything in between), but there are so many different styles (and price points), that there is something for everyone. I personally have been eyeing a few more faves like THIS HALTER TOP, THIS PERFECT STRIPED TOP, and THIS LONG SLEEVE DARK STRIPED TOP (literally bought this, returned it, contemplating buying again – judge me). PS; use code “CANDY” for a secret 10% off your purchase!
The Perfect Shoe to Match
If you’re looking for something to match the white part of your stripes to, may I recommend the SUPERGA 2790. Not sure if you have noticed, but I have been LIVING in these shoes lately. They are literally the perfect white sneaker: comfy and chic. I’ve heard mixed reviews about how comfy these shoes are and I truly think it’s about finding the right size for yourself.
I actually have another pair of SUPERGAs (my pink espadrille beauties) in a smaller than normal size and I find that I can’t wear them for long periods of time. With the all white pair, I ordered the same smaller size and exchanged them for my normal size (US8, EU39). They fit perfectly and I could wear them everyday (well I kind of already do). LAST TIP: Tie the laces as TIGHT as possible on your foot to ensure the shoe stays with your foot- this REALLY helps with comfort.
