Striped Top - Forever 21, via swap; Cardigan - Target; Jeans - DKNY; Shoes - Bass
Here is a look I have seen absolutely everywhere at this point - every blog and magazine seems to have featured a striped top with a colored jean and oxfords.  I love it, and I love how easy it is to translate it and make it your own.  I saw a Gap ad where the oxfords were hot pink and the jeans were lavender - so much fun!  I've seen it done with a moto-style cardigan and black footwear.  Depending on the shapes, colors, and textures, it can read as classic, preppy, nautical, biker, whatever.  You could bling it out with sparkle or flower-embellishments on the sweater.  You could do a longer top and belt it (with a colored belt, even!)  Flats or short boots or espadrilles or wedges instead of oxfords.  Do all bright colors, or do all neutrals.  It's an equation you could interpret as you like.  I love the pop of purple in my rolled-up jeans - how are you going to do it?
