Stripe prints are considered a staple piece for Fashionistas/os. Almost everyone has a striped piece of clothing in their wardrobe. Whether it be a top, a sweater or even a pair of jeans, stripes come out to play in the fall season.
This week’s Fashionisto was spotted totally pulling off the stripe trend! He was caught wearing a very colorful outfit, starring a striped long sleeve shirt. The stripes are thicker and alternate in color. For bottoms, he is wearing a pair of dark red straight leg jeans. To pull the entire look together, he matched his jeans with the one dark red stripe on his top. This is a great strategy to mixing colors as it gives the outfit a sense of harmony. The eye is drawn to one shade as opposed to a mess of mismatched color. He added a gray hat to his look along with a gray backpack. The classic black Nike sneaker finishes the stripe style quite well.
Hint: Okay Fashionistos, this is important to remember. There are different types of stripes out there. Stripes that are placed horizontally are known to give the appearance of a wider figure. This is not always the case, but horizontal stripes can be very unflattering on some body types. Stripes that are placed vertically can make you appear longer and thinner. So, when choosing your striped top for this style, keep that in mind! Next, you will need a pair of jeans. If you are looking to be bold, go for a color that will pop just like this week’s Fashionisto. Comfortable sneakers work well with this style, so definitely wear your favorite pair! Finally, finish off the outfit with accessories of your choice. Some suggestions can be: a cap, sunglasses, colorful bracelets or a backpack if you are on your way to class. Good luck and strut your stuff in stripes Fashionistos!
