The Best of Summer's Blue Stripes

As if one wasn't enough, I rounded up my favorite blue striped tops and rompers you've seen on my Instagram @KelseyThisYear throughout the summer! Though they may appear the same, each has unique traits that I love about it, and gives off unique, fun vibes for any summer occasion. Keep reading to check out what drew me to them! 

 

Trend 1 | Off the Shoulder

Here is my most recent addition - an off-the-shoulder top from Tobi. With small ruffles around the top, and poufy three-quarter length sleeves, this crop is flowy and fun for drink with friends. Not intending to reveal my midriff, I paired it with a high waisted jean skirt so the shorter length looks intentional.

Below is the more polished version of an off-the-shoulder, better for a casual office or brunch with the family. Sitting a bit higher on my shoulders, it's easier to fall down, but is longer so can be more versitile with whatever bottoms you want.

Trend 2 | RomperS

Ah - my favorite! Rompers can be spotted throughout my blog, and I love the simplicity of only putting on one piece in the morning. It makes putting together an outfit that much easier!

On the left, is an off-the-shoulder dark navy romper that's made out of a synthetic fabric, which isn't the highest quality but is easy to wear in the summer heat. On the right is a newer plunging v-neck romper that is more fitted shape and can transition between day to night easily with the long sleeves. Both are go-tos for me during summer and especailly on vacation! 

 

Trend 3 | Ruffles + Bows

Last but definitely not least are ruffles! Adding fringe to a classic blue striped top can make it more flirty and feminine. I paired both tops with Levis jeans so you can truly compare the two styles. Both of these shoes are also Steve Madden, so another example of how a nude shoe can switch up the look. Both of these ruffly tops are great for the office and can take you off the clock to the weekend!
