Season 1, Episode 6. Carla is wearing one of the most incredible shirts ever. Maybe that’s a bit hyperbolic but, it’s good. Real good:
Dual stripes! And if you notice her right shoulder in the top photo, you can see that the back of the shirt is the opposite–AMAZING. I don’t know anything about football, and am eternally grateful that I will be on an airplane during the Super Bowl and its ensuing hysteria (read: rioting) in San Francisco, but admittedly, she looks almost like a (very well-dressed) referee. So I say, reluctantly, Go 49ers?
I thought this look would be impossible to replicate. Thankfully, ASOS, Antipodium, and House of Holland see the merit in mixed stripe patterns:
1. ASOS Top with Spots and Stripes. 2. House of Holland V Stripe Oversized T-Shirt. 3. Antipodium Syntax T-Shirt in Patchwork Stripe. 4. Nasty Gal Straight Up Blouse. 5. Antipodium Syntax Striped Tee. 6. Marni Stripe Shopping Bag. 7. ASOS Shirt in Cutabout Stripe Print. 8. Theory ‘Caslyn’ Cotton Skort. 9. House of Holland Striped Denim Skirt. 10. Marni Stripe Silk Twill Top.
And yes, that’s a skort on the bottom left. Like most trends of the 80s and 90s, I am a proponent of bringing them back. Clearly.
Here’s to dual stripes. And the 49ers. I guess.
