Inspired: Ann Taylor {Double Breasted + Stripes}

Last week, I got an email from Ann Taylor proclaiming stripes as the must have trend for fall (yes, yes, yes). They also offered this bit of advice,

Stripes add a chic graphic pop and are a wardrobe must-have this season. Play with proportion and layer them on...
The email touted two outfits demonstrating the general chicness of stripes. I, of course, immediately fell in love with this ensemble.

How great is that double breasted sweater jacket? As I was shuffling past the Forever 21 storefront this weekend, I saw a similar jacket. I went in and started hunting for them on the racks. I went back to the display section to find the mannequin wearing my beloved jacket, and of course, it was nowhere to be found. My husband asked me what I was so anxious to find and I kept telling him "they have a double breasted knit blazer somewhere and I have to find it". At this point, I am sure he thought I had lost my mind. When I got home, I hopped on my computer and felt vindicated as I found jacket below on their website. I also found some other goodies to make this outfit work for less:

Casual Knit Blazer - Forever 21 - $29.80
Scoop Neck Striped Top - Forever 21 - $10.90
Flat Front Skinny Pants - Forever 21 - $22.80
Blinged Out Wrap Snap Bracelet - Charlotte Russe - $6.50
Auburn Patent Pump - Payless Shoesource - $22.99
Baby Pearl And Ribbon Necklace - Charlotte Russe - $12.50

What do you think of this outfit? How about stripes as the must have trend for fall? Leave your thoughts below.

Happy Shopping.
