Steal of the Day: Designer Inspired Striped Sweater
On a recent rare occasion I actually shopped in-store rather than online, I did a fashion double-take inside an Old Navy store. Being that I’m stripe-addicted, I was looking to add some items to my over growing striped shirt collection when I spotted this color block inspired number in a pile of sweaters. I couldn’t pinpoint why I was so instantly enamored with it.
Was it the 80′s throwback color combination, the 3/4 sleeves? Then it came to me, Sonia Rykiel! The famous French fashion designer was crowned the “Queen of Knits” back in in 1967 for her colorful striped creations, and hasn’t slowed down since.
And while I don’t support knock-offs, the Old Navy version seems to be more inspired by the Rykiel aesthetic then directly copying it. Sure, we all could do with a little more designer duds in our wardrobe, but I’m willing to settle for this striped steal for the time being. It’s the perfect staple sweater for Fall and will leave you with plenty of extra funds to spruce up your seasonal style.
