I always keep two particular things in my closet: a black and white longsleeve top, and a lightweight black jacket. These simple pieces have great versatility and, depending on the cut, will not go out of style. In the past I have owned two other striped tops almost identical to the one in these photos, one from Forever 21 and one from Anthropologie. When they wear out, it is only a matter of months before I replace them, and this time I chose one from the lovely Dutch clothing company Scotch & Soda.

I tend to treat my striped white tops as a neutral, since you can layer quite a few colors and styles on top of classic prints. For this outfit I threw on a simple black jacket from Zara, from earlier 2016, with the standard large square pockets seen on many of their pieces. Finally, I have some jeans from Free People, a vegan bag from Urban Expressions and shoes from Steve Madden. Here are a few ideas to consider for your go-to wardrobe!
