Striking Stripes for Summer

For me, starting the summer off right always includes the perfect outfit. Whether I’m heading to the city or just hanging out at a family BBQ, I can never go wrong with stripes. Stripes have been around for forever, and I think they’ll be around for a long time, because who will get sick of them? Definitely not this girl! Stripes are so versatile and can be seen in everyday wear on every type of Fashionista. No matter what your style may be, adding stripes into your wardrobe is always going to make it exciting and unique.


Stripes can go with just about anything and come in tons of different colors, shapes, and sizes. My favorite go-to in the summer is a striped T-shirt dress. This T-Shirt dress stood out to me because of how the black and tan stripes complement and flow with one another. The neutral colors also make it easy to add some pops of color and intrigue in your accessories. T-shirt dresses are fun and easy to wear, plus you can dress them up or down depending on the occasion!

Layering with stripes creates a whole new look, and a denim shirt is one of my favorite ways to layer. Since it is summertime, denim jackets can be a bit heavy but denim shirts are the perfect piece. Denim shirts are lightweight and can be the final touch to any outfit! There are so many different washes of denim that can match just about anything, so you can never go wrong. I thought this lighter wash looked great in contrast with the dark stripes in my dress.

Finding the right shoes to complete any outfit can be tricky but knee-high gladiators can be the solution! Knee-high gladiators add a little something extra to your outfit to tie your look together and draw the attention to your legs. They’re the final touch to your summer look, so you can be ready for all types of summer fun.
