I may have a problem with striped shirts as evidenced by the photo below. However, they're something I always feel good in - comfortable but not sloppy.
While we were in Ann Taylor LOFT, I saw this top. Yes, I have a lot of striped tops, but they actually do get worn out, and besides, I've gotten rid of a couple of the ones in the photo above. This one is made from a thick fabric with a bit of structure. In the store, it was on sale for $24.99, with an additional 40% off, so it came in at around $15. Not bad!
