Style Advice of the Week

Happy spring break, Fashionistas! This week’s STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK is all about them stripes! While such a timeless pattern, stripes are a basic design that everyone should known how to rock. You can wear them alone or mix them with other colors and prints. This Fashionista wears a long sleeve, horizontal striped blouse. Underneath, she wears skinny jeans with black combat boots to match. Over the top, she adds a touch of edge with a leather jacket.

So, you want to know how to rock this look? Don’t believe those rumors that stripes add 10 pounds to an outfit or are “unflattering.” Stripes can work for everyone, BUT not everyone can wear certain striped pieces. For example, a striped maxi skirt might not work for one person but that same person could maybe rock a striped midi skirt. If you feel like something doesn’t look right while styling a striped piece, add other elements.

Jewelry and accessories can add that something extra to a striped dress. My favorite striped article of clothing would have to be striped jeans. There is nothing more mod than black and white striped jeans or pants. They can be styled so many different ways. My favorite color to pair with stripes? I would probably have to go with maroon. It’s boho and fresh and can be dressed up or down! So, how are you going to style your stripes? Get creative and remember, don’t be afraid to take risks!
