ALL IN THE DETAILS: Stripes And Shine

All In The Details

Throughout my years of fashion exploration, I have never seen stripes going out of trend. After all, there is nothing unflattering about stripes; it is a classic and neutral pattern that can be showcased in any type of outfit. What I also personally like about stripes is that it has a visually pleasing sliming effect, which can give you that extra boost of self-confidence in your daily life.

In this casual outfit, this trendsetting Fashionista exudes her charisma by effortlessly rocking the classic combination of black and white colors. She also pairs her oversized top with a pair of high-waisted shorts, which is a simple piece that every fashion enthusiast should own for this summer season.  Additional simple touches of accessories such as floral headbands, statement jewelry and even colorful socks complete the whole look.

For more ideas to incorporate stripe patterns in your wardrobe, you can easily draw inspirations from fashion designers, who fully embrace the exposure of these basic geometric lines. Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein are all great examples. These fashion designers also encourage mixing stripes with contrasting prints, such as polka dots, checkers and floral patterns.

How To: Remember that stripes also come in different colors and dimensions. From the classic black and white pattern to bright living colors, you can make your own graphic statement of stripes during the day or night. For striped accessories, you can sport Michael Kors’ tote bag or Sunglass Hut’s bold sunglasses. Have fun creating your own unique look!
