Feminine Stripes in Classic Black & White

As the season starts to change there are certain trends I am just not quite ready to let go of. Seeing as this is Texas, I think we get a pass when it comes to summertime fashion extensions because lets face it, it’s so HOT here!

So the trends I am talking about are flirty sleeves and hems and of course, tassels. This look features a super cute striped t-shirt, but what makes it so special is the hem! It has a raw design where it is attached to the bodice, and has a ruffled relaxed fit. I ordered this top from Shein on Amazon for $12.99 and for the price, the quality is excellent! I love to pair it with black high waisted shorts and sandals, but for this look I chose black skinny jeans to show how is it a perfect piece for summer and yet transitional to fall!


For accessories I am wearing a collar necklace from Stage in a white filigree design, black Jessica Simpson sunglasses, my signature straw fedora (similar), and MIA slip-on sneakers with a faux leather tie design. The mixture of textures with the stripes really adds interest to the look, and makes it stand out from the typical black and white ensemble.


The final touch to this look is Givenchy Noir 4-in-1 mascara. This has been my summer go-to for natural long,  gorgeous lashes! The formula is lightweight, and the innovative brush is so cool! I especially love the sleek packaging, and how easy it is to take on the go! I’m carrying it in my favorite Kate Spade tote (similar) today!


If you are looking for a great way to add a girly touch to a black and white look, think of the sleeves or the hem of the item! Adding in ruffles, bell sleeves or peplum/babydoll hems can really make a difference in transforming the look!
