Fashion | Navy Striped Drape Shirt

I think I've got a bit of a 'thing' with stripes at the moment... I wrote a post this week about the almost nautical trend & now I'm back with another! Seems I'm having a bit of a love affair!

I'm pretty sure every blogger & their cat has this Primark draped shirt - The cross over style seems to have taken the fashion world by storm this season & with it being patterned with a navy stripe it feels like it's been a winner in everyones' books! It's such a flattering style, the light chiffon material falls really nicely over the bust (even for a small boobed lady like myself) and gathers perfectly at the hips. The slightly capped sleeves fall lovely off the shoulders, which for me works really well, because I'm a bit funny about the tops of my arms & shoulders. Basically what I'm saying that this shirt is such a lovely fit! I'm really so impressed with this Primark offering - I think it's quite a grown up piece & I'm sure I'll get loads of wear out of it.

I'm letting the draped shirt do most of the taking with todays' outfit! I've paired the top with a simple pair of black skinnies & my favourite H&M cream trench coat. I'm really excited for the weather to pick up again so I can start wearing this coat properly, it's quite a thin material so it's been a tad too cold recently, but things are certainly looking up! Bring on the sun! I love this time of year because you can start getting all your Spring/Summer clothes out the wardrobe again, hence the pointed cut out flats I picked up in London last year. 
I also think I've found my perfect jewellery combination here - Hallalujah! You'll probably get sick of seeing it over the next few weeks, but my Vivienne Westwood bracelet, DKNY ceramic watch & gold blue topaz ring is really exciting me at the moment, I think the three work so perfectly together

How have you guys been working the stripe trend? I'd love to see.

  1. Lovely outfit, Claire! I love the wrap-style tops, too, but have yet to actually buy any! Also need to get some more striped items in my wardrobe. I think I have just three... Your new ring looks gorgeous! Hope you had a lovely Easter weekend! :) xxx - a fashion, beauty & lifestyle blog

    1. Thanks Em :-) Same here, I've never really worn them before but I love this! It's so super duper flattering. Thank you! Hope you had a fab Easter too :-) X

  2. I love stripes and navy too! They're so easy, but cute and wearable in every season :)

    1. I know right! I can't wait to get more wear out of this top. X
