Summer Stripes || Skirt Set

Chicago-based fashion blogger Jessica Sturdy sharing her East Coast summer outfit inspiration: Fame & Partners pinstriped crop top skirt set with white leather slides and a bamboo bag.

The matching top and skirt set is a look I probably won’t be sick of anytime soon! Most of the time, it actually looks like you’re wearing a dress, but it’s so easy to mix and match the two pieces with other staples in your wardrobe. This striped skirt, for example, looks great paired with a cream-colored cable sweater on chillier summer evenings, and I’ve worn this tie-front crop top with a pair of white high-waisted shorts, too.

This little crop top and drop-waist skirt number is the perfect flirty party look. A natural bag (or even a straw tote) and flat slides keep it kind of casual, don’t you think? I love the mix of the classic color and stripes with the ruffled hem, and just a little bit of edge with the barely-there top. (It’s basically just a piece of fabric with arm holes that you can tie yourself!)

I’ve mentioned Fame and Partners on the blog before, but it’s one of the best sites to find unique pieces that fit really well. You can customize so many different features, too… Hem length, sleeves, necklines, etc! This skirt is also available in a long maxi length that’s gorgeous, but I figured I’d get more use out of it with it being on the shorter side.

I almost wore this outfit to the Malibu event in New York last week, but it wasn’t quite warm enough on the rooftop. And the wind… Not a good idea with a ruffled mini skirt. Good thing I brought a backup plan! Can’t wait to re-wear it for get-togethers this summer.

I love how this outfit feels very East Coast… Maybe I’ll pull it out again in the Hamptons later this summer if it’s warm enough. Until then, I’ll just be here in Chicago seeking out hydrangeas and blue and white homes with a preppy, coastal vibe… 😂

Also, the amount of time I spent trying to think of a catchy title to the Bad & Boujee tune… 😂 Crop Top, Drop… Waist? haha

    Wow! I love this cool trend. The matching sets always make its wearer look fresh and unique! The white striped sky blue set is great for summer beach walks, I like the way you finish this outfit by adding a wooden bag and white slides. This one ideally fits your beautiful silhouette, showing off your uniqueness! Love it! I also made a post about must have matching sets to try this Summer 2018, hope you gonna like these ideas and who knows, maybe you will find some additional inspiration. Anyway, thanks for sharing your blog post, a very great style to follow!
