Favorite Stripes


One of my go-to closet staples are stripes! I may or may not have a problem. I have a nice little (or maybe not to little) collection of striped t-shirts and long sleeves. They are simply so classic, comfortable and easy to wear. A long sleeve striped tee with white jeans and sandals, nothing is better or simpler to throw on.

Due to my small obsession with stripes, I am always on the lookout for the latest and greatest. For years, Saint James Stripes have been my top pick, but now I have a new favorite: J.Crew's new Deck Striped Long Sleeve T-Shirt. It is perfection. The updated and improved version of a Saint James, it is made of a similar type of heavy knit cotton however this J.Crew version is lighter and has a bit more stretch. The boxy cut is both modern and comfortable.  I bought the top in classic white and navy stripes, but I have already worn it so many time in the last week, I have the grey and navy version on the top of my wish list. If you are in the market for a striped tee, or just want to add to your collection, this tee is a closet staple.
