STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Blue + White = Savvy Stripes

I always love experimenting with my summer style! Trying out a trend and mixing different colors are always a fun idea and can open up new doors of your own style world. Summer is definitely a great time to add color to your outfits even if you’re like me and love to wear neutrals. You can choose to add color trend in your accessories, in an item of clothing or go all out and have your entire outfit be colorful! I like the idea of mixing more neutral colors and patterns with fun colors so that the outfit is not overwhelming. With the blue and white color trend I’ve been seeing, they’re a great neutral alternative that allows color and pattern in your outfit.

When I spotted this Fashionista, she knew exactly how rock the blue and white in her striped blouse that lined the blue down the front and sleeves. This shirt definitely screamed summer to me and had a little bit of a nautical feel to it. Incorporating her love of color, she paired lilac rolled jeans for a subtle yet beautiful color addition to the outfit. She was able to show off her cognac strapped sandals with her rolled jeans as well. An unexpected pop of color appeared in her purse: a light coral satchel with brown leather handles and a strap. How was she able to pair all these colors so well? The blue and white striped blouse not only acts as a neutral, but the pattern also helps to break up the colors and put a focus on her outfit. She also drew the white out of the shirt with her watch and incorporated a teal blue into her necklace for some accessorizing.

This savvy striped shirt is so versatile and can be worn dressed up or down! Do yourself a favor and invest in one for the summer because you’ll find you can pair it with your favorite jeans, skirts and most colorful pieces.
