STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Styled In Stripes

With Welcome Week right around the corner, picking out the trendiest outfits to reunite with your college friends in is definitely a high priority when you’re headed back to school. A major trend that’s been taking over Instagram and has also been sported by celebrities like Kylie Jenner this summer is black and white stripes, whether it be on a basic cropped T-shirt or a stylish one-piece. The monochromatic color and simple pattern really bring an element of maturity and class to any kind of outfit, which makes it a perfect print to rock for any college student.

This Fashionista is perfectly showing off the black and white striped trend by rocking a super cool striped black romper. The trendy stripes mixed with the ultimate party article make a perfect pair when trying to leave a stylish impression with new classmates and old university friends. To spice up her outfit without distracting from the focus of her look, she chose to combine the romper with classic black Birkenstocks, a simple zippered side bag and an ultra trendy tattoo choker. This look works for her because she chose not to venture outside of the black and white pattern on the romper, sticking to strictly black accessories that are simple enough not to distract from her adorable one-piece. The shorts element of her romper make it more practical for back-to-school partying at night, and the Birkenstock shoes make the ensemble casual enough to wear during the day, which makes this piece super versatile while stilling sticking right on-trend. Keeping all of her accessories small, black and simple also help the thin white stripes to stand out just the right amount against her tanned skin.
