Among her friends and family, new mom and catering company owner Jamie Schmones Erickson is known for wearing stripes almost every single day. “That’s always the joke, whether it’s a striped button-down, T-shirt, or tank top.” We think that’s a pretty smart play: Classic and simple with a touch of French-girl chic, nautical stripes are a perfect way to liven up any layered look.
