Flipping the pages

inspiration, outfits comment

I love magazines and catalogs. I could spend hours flipping through them looking for creative inspiration. I got my spring catalog from J. Crew recently, so this week, I’ll be participating in one of my favorite pastimes: choosing outfits and showing you how I would style them.

J. Crew Triple-Stripe Elbow-Patch Sweater (similar)

Triple-striped elbow patch sweater

I avoided striped shirts for the longest time because I felt that they were unflattering to my figure. But, what I didn’t know was that choosing the right stripes makes a world of difference. The proportional design of the sweater pictured above creates a slim silhouette, and lightweight merino wool drapes against the body for a cool, casual look. Love the elbow patches – they’re little details where I least expected them!

How would I pair this sweater?
