THE STRIPE BIB TUNIC (+ ON SALE)

jcrew blue stripe shirt

I love it when I can share that one of my closet staples has gone on major sale. Today is one of those days: my favorite stripe tunic from J.Crew is now under $100. I bought it earlier this summer and it quickly became a mainstay in my wardrobe (not surprising, of course, considering that it’s my favorite combo of blue/white stripes). It’s one of the things from summer that will definitely be sticking around for fall and winter. Here’s why: the silk amps it up and makes it just a bit fancier than my usual cotton stripe tees, and since it’s technically a “tunic,” the length lends itself nicely to layering underneath sweaters like this one. The best part? (Besides the fact that it’s on sale along with this adorable thing.) That neon trim, obviously. It adds a touch of whimsy to an otherwise classic – but a bit serious – top. Neon + stripes + on sale? That’s a winning combination.
