I tend to favor classic styles and combinations, particularly when traveling. One of my most foolproof combinations is a simple stripe top under a trench coat (as seen recently here). I’m no stranger to striped tops in all color varieties, from classic blues and reds, to other primary colors like yellow and green, and even preppy pink pastels. My trench looks have varied as well, from classic khaki staples, to a more modern lace number, to a timeless navy, to a more feminine blush tone piece. But, my favorite stripe and trench moments are when the two items are worn together. The trusted versatility and understated elegance these combinations offer can be a total life saver while on-the-go. I am always adding accessories like my favorite sunglasses, an clean watch, and a silk neck scarf to bring together a timeless ensemble.

Below, I am showing a few of my favorite striped tops and a few of my most adored trench coats, all perfect for creating easy, classic, travel-tested combos.

three // This form-fitting cobalt blue striped top is ideal for anticipating warmer weather ahead.
four // The gauzy blend in the material of this striped top creates the ultimate lived-in look.

one // An absolute classic. Pair back to a long sleeve tee and push the sleeves of the trench up to show off some stripe!
two // An oversized silhouette combined with a more of-the-moment olive tone creates a more trendy yet still wearable piece.
three // Red is one of my favorite colors- and in a trench it happens to marry quite nicely with a classic navy and white stripe.
four // For the more feminine, a pastel trench is the perfect alternative to khaki.
