STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Stripes Are A Solid

October 7th, 2015 at 2:00am

As they say, the best time to wear a striped (well, anything) is all the time. But really, stripes are perfect for any season and any time of day. Stripes are always on-trend, and I don’t know about you, but I never find myself tossing my striped pieces from my closet to the curb. This is because stripes are familiar yet can transform your whole look. Stripes have the ability to make your look casual, dressy, edgy or chic. As for stripes and the changing seasons, that is easy! There are some great long sleeved and knee-length tops out there to get your fix of stripes during the colder months. According to the Pantone Color Report for fall 2015, the main colors incorporated with stripes that you will see this season are earthy neutrals and, of course, black and white.

If you want to go for a more casual, daytime look while incorporating stripes into your ensemble, wear a looser, lightweight striped T-shirt dress. Then, try pairing it with a light wash denim jacket. When it came to rocking stripes this season, this Fashionista was going for an edgier look with her striped shirt. She pairs it with a black skater skirt, Dr. Martens and smokier eye makeup. She also added to her edgy look with this gold spike cuff.
