How To Wear Stripes

JEANS

Pairing a striped blouse or any other top with a pair of jeans is always trending and gives you that chic and classic look.

BLAZER

Wearing a blazer with your stripes definitely adds a classic feel to your outfit.

CARDIGAN

The cardigan is pretty simple and basic, perfect for cooler, air conditioned spaces, afternoons or windy days!

VERTICAL

Ladies, wear vertical stripes with your bottoms and skirts, especially if you are on the shorter side! For the curvier woman it slims the legs and elongates the body. So whether a dress or bottoms you can’t go wrong with vertical stripes.

MIXED PATTERNS

Go on ahead and mix up your stripes with other patterns. Whether it’s with florals or blocked colors, mixing patterns gives you that edgy runway look.

THIN STRIPES

A very basic way to start rocking your stripes is to wear thin stripes. Not only is it more flattering but it is a subtle way to introduce stripes to your wardrobe.

SKIRTS

Any skirt goes well with your stripes! Whether denim, a pleated, or even a satin midi skirt, skirts are perfect for a fun and chic look.
