I’m starting a new series on the blog about closet staples. I feel like with every post I’ve done in the past, I’ve focused more on trends and color palettes. But the best way to build a classy closet is to start with closet staples.

And we’re kicking off with one of my favorites – the striped shirt. Stripes have a way of making your outfit less formal and a bit more playful. When I was still a tax lawyer, I would pair my suits with either a printed shirt or a basic striped shirt. I love how it gives your look a more casual vibe but it stays feminine and classy at the same time.

In this look I paired my striped shirt with a leather skirt to create a more edgy look. This is one of my favorite looks at the moment at the moment. The striped shirt makes the look less dressy and so much more comfortable to wear! Wear this with strappy sandals and a classy black bag and you’re good to go!

What is your closet favorite at the moment? Let me know in the comments down below!
