Does anything say August quite like stripes and whites? I picked up this oversized sleeve stripe top from Zara a month or so back thinking that it was a dress. However, when I went to wear it, I quickly realized that wearing this piece as a dress (sans pants) was going to be an issue because it definitely wasn’t long enough to be a dress, les sigh. But that’s OK, I’m digging it as a tunic as well.
I’ve been really into oversized sleeves all year long it seems. There’s something about a poufy, dramatic sleeve that I adore so much because it adds such a dramatic element to a look. I also love wearing dresses over jeans, which quickly became the inspo after realizing this piece was indeed not a dress haha. Wearing dresses over jeans almost reinvents the entire piece and breathes new life into a dress you’ve worn over and over again.
I’m a firm believer that you can wear stripes and white all year long, so I’ve rounded up some of the best deals on stripes below! Sadly, this Zara beauty is sold out but I’ve curated a few more of my favorites for you pretties to shop.
