My personal style has always been reflective of a retro, bohemian vibe. I love that we’re at a point in fashion where we’re seeing more of this, because it’s made it so much easier to shop! Whereas in the past, I had just a few go-to stores where I could find pieces that suited this style, I feel like this season I’m finding one piece better than the next.
I can’t get enough of the retro stripes, lieutenant hats, wide leg crops and flared everything. To be honest, I’ve never been much of a stripes girl. A solid, two-color stripe has always felt monotonous and boring to me (yeah, I said it). But a retro stripe, I’m all for. I love the mix and match of colors and how all of the vibrancy can make a simple sweater or top a stand-out piece.
When I found this sweater from Madewell, I nearly died and went to heaven. The color palette was literally everything I had ever dreamed about in the perfect sweater, and I could only hope that the fit and feel was just as good. It turned out to be perfectly soft and just boxy enough to have that oversized feel without feeling frumpy.
I’ve linked a few of my favorite retro striped sweaters below, but I would also love to hear about your finds! Have you found a piece yet this season that was the answer to your perfect-sweater prayers? ?
