Vertical, horizontal, diagonal. Stripes have been one of those patterns that are some people’s favorites and others' worst fears. From work wear pinstripes to black and white Parisian inspired ones, stripes have a transcendent, trendy worthy quality.
With a little shimmer and a bunch of color, this jailhouse look is no longer meant for only those behind bars. This Fashionista radiates with her bright green and black striped silk shirt. Perfect to add a pop of color to a dark, rainy day, she pairs this blouse with simple black leggings and boots.
Since her shirt is the focal piece of her ensemble, she accessorizes subtly with a feminine watch and delicate bracelets. Her Chanel stoned bangle and Hamsa bracelet coordinate in color and simplicity.
Pick the right colors, and be careful to accessorize appropriately. Warning: red and white stripes mixed with a beanie and oversized glasses can leave you less street savvy and a liitle more Where’s Waldo.
Spotted: Tory Burch, Tsumori Chisato and Jean-Charles de Castelbajac cast stripes down their spring 2012 runway collections. Whether separates or full frocks, an array of stripes in a variety of colors and thicknesses were everything from nautical to athletic.
