Stripes are one of those patterns where you either have too much or not enough, which makes it one of the hardest prints to shop for.

It's all the same, yes, but there's always something different about each striped piece that convinces you this is the last one. Basically, finding the stripey number that's for sure going to complete your collection is no easy task, but to make that happen, you've got to know what you're looking for.

Here's my list:

Does it look like anything I've seen before?

Does it have an unexpected element of design?

Is it something I can wear multiple ways?

This J. JS LEE skirt ticks off all the boxes on my list. Silk maxi skirts with light blue stripes are few and far between and if you look closely, you'll notice the print switches up at the bottom; and since it's silk, it's elegant enough to wear to an evening out, but also with a white tee and platform sandals for brunch.

That, my friends, is the ultimate recipe for closet success.
