Striped shirt is widely loved for its classic yet modern vibe and built-in Parisian chicness. It’s easy to dress down for lounging by the pool or roaming around. Here, I want to share with you four ways to dress it up for parties and events.

Basic versions like the blue and white one seen on Jennifer Meyer are more vacation-related, thus require a little more thoughts to be polished up. Take a hint from the beloved jewelry designer, choose a well fitting version, tuck it into a bright skirt, which also adds a pop of color, then elevate the look with accessories: lace up heels, structured leather bag, and loads of jewelry.

Updated versions with unique details, like the ones spotted on Michele Hicks and Jenna Lyons, can be a centerpiece themselves, so stay with a monochrome color palette to maximize the impact. Also choose pieces that are sharply tailored for cool sophistication, be it a vest, leather pants or glossed leather pointy-toe pumps.
