Some say stripes never go out of style and I would have to agree. I have been wearing them for as long as I can remember and they always add a touch on nautical to my looks which I love yet sometimes wearing stripes on stripes can be tricky. I got this ensemble at Tibi while I was in New York and I fell completely in love. Maybe it helped that I am so tall so the fit of the long pencil skirt actually worked very well with my height but if you are a bit on the shorter side, I recommend full vertical stripes instead and a shorter fit on the skirt. All in all these two pieces are quite versitile because you can also wear them separately in so many different ways. I will probably be wearing this cropped top with EVERYTHING this summer!
