A striped top (or Mariniere or Breton) never ever gets old or goes out of style. To me a striped top is also a sign of early Spring, a time when you can ditch the winter coat for a lighter jacket or blazer, your favorite top or sweater, jeans, and whichever shoes make the most sense. It’s a classic look, but still modern, even a little rock’n’roll, depending upon how you style it.
A leather moto jacket is a versatile option (I bought a Nili Lotan one years back and rely on it), but I also like the idea of trying out this season’s oversized blazer with a stripe underneath. I prefer skinnier jeans to offset a looser top, and have no issue mixing navy with black, in fact, I prefer it. Here, some favorites.
