It seems like everywhere you go women are making a statement with stripes.
Stripes are classic. They maybe in more years than others but they’re always a great casual wardrobe staple that will make you look sporty and youthful.
This season they are being worn in a particular way to make them look fresh and new. Let me show you three examples:
This year stripes act as a neutral against all the very bold colors that women have taken a liking to. Just like a leopard print or snakeskin pattern has become a neutral to go with any color, so have stripes.
You can wear a striped t-shirt with:
1) A bright, cute little jacket and skinny colored jeans
The black and white stripes tone down this outfit enough where you are not going to feel like a clown in all spring’s new bright hues.
2) With a Vest
A great vest is statement piece, so if you see one you like, because they are hard to come by, grab it.
This cute leather vest look so cool over top of this striped black and white t-shirt and casual black skirt. It totally dresses up this simple summer look and makes it a little because the black leather expresses a touch of a wild side.
3) With a Sweater
We’ve all worn this preppy look at one time or another, but remember the key this year is a burst of color. Instead of this sweater being baby pink or black, it is bold, Poppy red.
Other jewel tones you could try…Emerald Green, Monaco Blue, Violet, and even Neon which has been really populr would work here too. A pop of fluorescent orange or fuchsia up here by your face would be enough. Don’t overdo it by adding matching neon accessories if you go this route.
