How To Wear Stripes

How To Wear Stripes

Stripes have made a major comeback in the fashion picture. While horizontal stripes have been the choice of the safe dresser, the offbeat trends have included vertical stripes more than ever.

I personally love the snazzy appeal of stripes because they make you look great and stand out without having to do much. So here’s 6 ways you can wear striped this season.

1. The Striped Dress:

Bold stripes such as Red can make you stand out so keep the accessories neutral. You want the focus on your stripes.

2. The Striped Shirt:

This has to be the most classic combination but is still so stylish, pairing a striped shirt with contrast trousers for a go to work look or with jeans for a casual look. Here I’ve chosen blue so the focus remains on the shirt as the statement wear.

3. The Striped Trousers:

Incorporate stripes in trousers and pair them with bright colours to make them stand out. Yellow, blue and red are good colours for the blouse with stripes trousers.

4. The Striped Jacket:

It cannot get more stripey than a striped jacket, can it? Stripes on jackets can look very stylish both for work as well as casual outfits. Although they are not for everyone, I think every once in a while we can all get experimental?

5. The Striped Skirt:

This is one of my most favourite casual outfits, probably something I would wear to the hairdressers or a brunch date with friends. This linen skirt can be styled in several ways to make it look different, perhaps a pink t shirt or even a bright yellow off the shoulder bouse?

6. The Striped Blouse:

Oh hello my favourite blouse and the most flattering one too. Off the shoulder tops with stripes were already a winner for me but throwing in ruffles has made it a double winner.

I hope you enjoyed the looks and I’ve convinced you to get yourselves some stripes this season?
