That is not a striped dress shirt, or a striped shirt suitable for dressier occasions, such as for wear with business, formal, or in-formal [black tie] attire.   That is a a striped sport shirt suitable for casual wear. Given your situation, I would wear with a solid blazer and solid or very small pattern odd pants, since it is a bold shirt.   While that shirt should never be worn for occasions requiring formal or conservative attire, you can continue to wear it...

Depends on the occasion.   I tried to think of options that wouldn't go with that suit, and I came up short with the single exception being rubber flip flops.   Pencil or chalk stripes usually mean business wear, but I don't know if anyone would bat an eyelash in this day and age at any occasion below black tie, if your shirt was white or pale blue, your tie navy or charcoal, and your shoes and accessories black cordovan shell or calf.
