Stripes in fashion have had a long engrained tradition with roots stemming from the classic nautical uniform and the dawning of patriotic stars and stripes. This fall we are seeing stripes everywhere, and sometimes in the most unexpected places. On the runways there are striped clutches and accessories accenting outfits and even models striding in striped pants.
This Fashionista demonstrates the stripe tradition with her casual striped top tucked into a classic pair of high-waist jeans. The deep orange and complementary dark gray colors in this top are perfect for the fall, and the variety in stripe thickness comes together to create a very unique and flattering look. Sometimes stripes can be a tricky pattern to get right. Luckily the variety that comes in thickness, color and direction guarantees a striped look for everyone. Do be mindful to pick a direction of pattern that works for your figure! While vertical stripes can be elongating for one person, horizontal or diagonal stripes might work better on another. If you’re going for a safe way to wear stripes, a simple cardigan or pullover can be well matched with a complementary color such as a darker or lighter tone in the pattern. Otherwise, you can also subtly accent your outfit with a striped accessory like a beanie, tote or scarf!
