In Search of Seth Aaron's Striped Jacket

The week Seth Aaron created a stunning stripe jacket for the Mommy and Me challenge on this season (season seven) of Project Runway I suddenly became drawn to anything with black and white stripes. The stripes mimicked the houndstooth in the mini look but went beyond typical check, houndstooth or stripe looks. Now, weeks after the show aired, I find myself still looking for any jacket that could live up to what is sure to be one of the most memorable designs in Project Runway history. Here are a few close options:
Top Row:
Oversize Triangle Stripe Jacket/Vest, ASOS $341.88

Striped Jersey Blazer, Topshop $110
Petite Stripe Jacket, Topshop $55
Labour of Love Striped Cotton Clown blazer, Farfetch $132
Bottom Row:
BCBG Striped cotton short sleeve blazer, Bluefly $139.99
Motel Contrast Shoulder Jacket, ASOS $47.86
Ponté-Knit Striped Blazer, Spiegel $79
Chaps Striped Sateen Jacket, Kohls $70


Since jackets were difficult to find, I looked for some tops and cardigans that could give a similar effect: Top Row:
Stripe Button Front Tunic, Arden B $39
Stripe Jersey Trapeze Tank, Outnet $55
Stripe Wrap Cardigan, The Limited $59.50
Stripe Henley Hoodie, Macy's $29.99
Bottom Row:
Ruffle Trim Stripe Top, Arden B $39
Stripe T-Shirt, Topshop $54
Stripe Trapeze Long Sleeve Top, Outnet $82.50
Strip Infinity Wrap, Oak $89
