STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: A Stripes And Boots Kinda Day

Style Advice of the Week

I was walking around campus when I ran into this Fashionista next to the bus stop. Her red scarf first caught my attention; when I looked closer, however, I noticed how much I loved her casual outfit!

The love this Fashionista’s bold striped shirt. Its subtle gray and white stripes made it perfect for any winter day — especially in a place like Seattle. It matches the scenery so well! There are so many variations to try when recreating this casual look that would work especially well for those lazy days around campus. You can use any color stripes to recreate this look; navy and white is popular right now — a very nautical look. If you choose to go nautical, try pairing your outfit with trousers and a structured jacket, or maybe even a fedora. You can even dress up the look by pairing your striped shirt with a blazer, or for spring, a colorful blazer like this one from Forever 21. For the bold Fashionista, try a neon stripe for spring; a little neon adds just enough pop to your outfit. Stripes are so versatile, so try to find your signature striped look.

Whatever your choice of stripe may be, try pairing your striped look with a great pair of boots. I had a family friend come visit me in Seattle and she said that Seattle was “the boot capital of the world” — everyone wears boots. There are so many different types, but I especially love this Fashionista’s tall black boots; they go with everything and can be dressed up or down.

Stripes are great for winter: find your perfect option and do not be afraid to mix it up with some great accessories like a patterned scarf.
