This Is the Most Versatile Item in Your Closet
If there’s one item of clothing that every woman should have in her closet, it’s a striped blouse. The classic piece, oftentimes thought of as an easy button-down, has proven to be one of the most versatile pieces of anyone’s wardrobe.
Whether you go the timeless blue-and-white route or prefer a more colourful version, stripes are the ideal print for anyone who wants to throw on a more graphic piece but isn’t quite ready to dive head-first into the sea of bold prints.
If you’re getting tired of pairing your striped top with a pair of trousers or jeans, don’t fret. There are plenty of ways to style this wardrobe staple to keep you and your ensembles feeling fresh. To illustrate our point, we’ve rounded up some of the best looks from street style stars to give you all the inspiration you need.

Layer your striped button-down over a sweater for an unexpected layering look that'll also keep you warm for the colder spring mornings.
Bring out the accent colour of your top with a pair of coloured tights or boots. Be sure to keep everything else neutral so you have just the right amount of colour.
Don't be afraid to mix your prints. A striped blouse will pair nicely with a checked plaid blazer. If you want to take it up a notch, throw on a pair of plaid socks.
Keep the look polished by coordinating the colours while mixing the types of stripes you wear for the tops and bottoms.
Opt for stripes in differing directions to create a more graphic look with your outfit. Wear your blouse with a pair of white pants and a beige trench to make this look ready for spring.
