Everyone's got a signature style. Kanye West has his closet of luxe hoodies, the Duchess of Cambridge has her royally cool slew of sophisticated coat dresses, and Gwen Stefani has her rockstar supply of stripes. In fact, as perhaps a public declaration of her love for them, Stefani has been snapped in her favorite stripes on more than one occasion. The proof? All the times in the past few months where she has, no doubt, wore her stripes on her sleeve.
Stefani took nearly identical pullovers but tweaked how she paired them. She casually half-tucked a Pam & Gela top ($295; pamandgela.com) into paint-splattered boyfriend jeans (right). A few weeks later, she went back to black and white skinny stripes, pairing them with distressed denim. She swapped out her red cat-eye frames for white ones, and her crazy cut-out heels for strappy ones.
The platinum blonde bombshell pulled off two distinct looks with the same A.L.C. knit ($105; shopsuperstreet.com) and frames. She first tucked it into a pair of slouchy utilitarian jeans with a camo bomber tied at her waist, complete with maroon booties (right), and then paired the top with belted destroyed boyfriend jeans, a black beanie, and Pharrell Williams's polka-dot Adidas Stan Smiths the second time around.
To support Pharrell Williams's Adidas Originals collection, she stepped out in his designs at two red carpet events, gravitating toward happy patch-riddled stripes both times. Her look? Slightly eccentric, contentedly whimsical, and uniquely Gwen.
