How to Wear it: Striped Button-up Shirt and Midi Wrap Dress

Introducing two pieces we're loving right now for spring that you're bound to reach for all season long! Check out our styling ideas for wearing these pieces to the market, on a city stroll, on a casual first date, and to meet the parents.

We'll start with an ever necessary fashion staple, the striped button up. Universally flattering and incredibly versatile, there are endless ways to style this closet workhorse: tie it, unbutton it, button all the way up, layer over your swimsuit, try a half-tuck...I could really go on forever, but then we’d never get down to the style photos below. Just be sure to choose a subtle light-blue stripe and 100% cotton to up the versatility and wear it all year round. 


Trying wearing it to the farmer's market...

Oh how we love this look, let us count the ways! Keeping the stripe subtle (i.e. small thin stripes) is the easiest way to venture into mixing prints as seen above with this stripe and floral scarf combo. Paired with white denim and clogs, this outfit is the perfect way to jump into spring during transitional weather. Switch to sandals when temperatures rise, or try canvas sneakers with a low profile to embrace an effortless, ready-for-anything 'Sage' vibe.


Try wearing this striped shirt on a city stroll...

Didn’t we tell you that striped button-ups are versatile? We love the downtown vibes of this edgier look comprised of darker colors and a tactful mix of prints and textures that’s not overwhelming. 

For the 'Harpers' out there embracing their softer side, a good midi dress in a subdued color with feminine detail is a perfect throw on and go outfit in a single piece. Just switch out accessories for different occasions. 


Perhaps wear it to a casual first date...


Who doesn’t already have an easy denim jacket in their fashion arsenal? The jacket ties the look together and keeps things casual enough for a Bumble meet-cute at your local bar, while the snake print boots and sleek ‘do raise the chic factor just enough for date night.

Or try dressing it up to meet the parents...


We wouldn’t fault you if your instinct is to pair this dress with neutral-colored block heels, and darling, it would look ravishing. But why not step it up a notch by complimenting this gorgeous minty green with an unexpected coral? Pro tip: when in doubt, match your lipstick to your shoes.
