How To Wear Striped Shirts For Fall

There’s nothing quite like the striped shirt. Its ability to transcend style genres and add a certain je ne sais quoi to any ensemble is unparalleled. Though often associated with spring and summer, the striped shirt is actually just as relevant right now and might be the perfect complimentary piece to a layered autumnal look.

    Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

    What better place to break out your favorite Breton stripe than at the airport? Huntington-Whiteley’s Alexander Wang top was the perfect complement to her Burberry hat, Brian Atwood boots, Saint Laurent Classic Duffle Bag ($1990), The Row Motorcycle Pants ($1950), and Chanel sunglasses.

    Christina Caradona of Trop Rouge

    We just can’t get enough of Christina Caradona of Trop Rouge’s style (did you see her behind-the-scenes at BCBG on our blog?). We love how she jazzed up her Express Striped Fitted Crew Neck Sweater ($50) with an Express Zippered Marled Boucle Mini Skirt ($50). A look perfect for lasting into the night!

    Fearne Cotton

    We can always count on Cotton to step out in an excellently layered look. The new mum wore a Topshop top with a crimson Vivienne Westwood skirt, Office boots, and a Mulberry bag.

    Julie Sarinana of Sincerely Jules

    Who said a striped shirt has to be black and white? Not us. Julie Sarinana of Sincerely Jules exhibited just this when she stepped out wearing a T by Alexander Wang Stripe Torquing Sweater ($106). She chose to pair it with 3.1 Phillip Lim Leather Jodhpur Pants ($1430), Vincent Ankle Strap Mules ($525), and the Ryder Calf Hair & Leather Satchel ($1095) — excellent pairings, indeed.

    Olivia Palermo

    How Palermo managed to wear stripes on stripes and come out not looking like an inmate is beyond us. Nevertheless, we adore her Tibi jacket paired with the covetable Louis Vuitton Sofia Coppola satchel, YOiM furfur shoes, and AG Adriano Goldschmied Leggings ($215).

    Ella Catliff

    We love a downtown ladylike version of just about anything, and the striped shirt is no exception! Catliff stepped out in Paris in a French Connection Tim Tim Striped Raglan T-Shirt ($48), textured Sandro jacket, 3.1 Phillip Lim bag, and Kurt Geiger flats.

    Lisa Dengler of Just Another Fashion Blog

    There are few things we admire more than an (almost) all-black outfit combined with a couple strategic standout pieces. Case in point: Lisa Dengler of Just Another Fashion Blog. She combined an H&M Trend peacoat with Zara jeans, Office London shoes, a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag, and an Otte New York Alexis Hat ($125). She selected a Callixto necklace and Cos stripe tee as her standout pieces.

    Rose Byrne

    The always-stylish Aussie made an appearance at the Labyrinth Theater Company’s benefit gala in New York City last month in this fall-appropriate ensemble. We love the contrast between her striped shirt and that bold, mustard coat!

    Blair Eadie of Atlantic Pacific

    Sadly, the Who What Wear staff hasn’t had the opportunity to break out their rain gear yet, but if you’re in a region that has full-fledged weather, please take note of this look, courtesy of Blair Eadie of Atlantic Pacific. She wore her Ann Taylor Striped Long Sleeve Tee ($69) over a Denim and Supply cargo skirt. She accessorized with Karen Walker Super Duper Sunglasses ($280), a Cuyana Leather Tall Tote ($150), and, of course, her Rag & Bone X Hunter Tall Boots ($295).

    Andy Torres of Style Scrapbook

    In need of a new weekend errands look? Well, we think this will do quite nicely. Style Scrapbook’s Andy Torres wore an American Apparel t-shirt with a Mango trench coat, Jose Sanchez leather pants, a Givenchy bag, and Dr Martens boots. She threw in a Kenzo Silver-Laquer Tiger Bracelet ($214) for a touch of fun, too!

    Miranda Kerr

    We love how the model let her Velvet by Graham & Spencer Pearl Stripe Sweater ($74) steal the spotlight and kept the rest of her ensemble in a neutral hue. She accessorized with Isabel Marant boots, a Louis Vuitton bag, and Oliver Peoples Benedict Aviator Sunglasses ($400). That insanely cool coat, you ask? It’s Rag & Bone’s Turner Coat ($1395).

    Mixing multiple colors in one look can be challenging, but also delightfully rewarding when done well. We love how this off-duty model chose different shades of brown and grounded them with a black and white striped shirt and black oxfords.
