STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Three Stripes, You’re In

Stripes are everywhere this summer, and the best part about this pattern is that you can style it in so many different ways! Start off by finding your favorite basic striped shirt, and get ready to dress it up or down. My personal favorite is this striped Boat-neck top, it’s pattern that has a classic, contemporary feel to it. The great part of this specific pattern is that you can downplay it by pairing it with solid or neutral pieces like these stylish slouchy leather ankle boots. Add some massive appeal to this modest look with a statement clutch or a bold bag. This eye-catching accessory will add some life to this low-key ensemble. 

When styling stripes, one thing to remember is that horizontal stripes add width, so if you want some curves to your boyish figure, you can create this illusion with this trick! In addition, a striped top paired with a solid pair of jeans perfected this look. Try staying away from head to toe stripes, and pay attention to the placement and width of the stripes in order to create various optical illusions to your figure.  

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “When in doubt, stripes! I’m a big believer in dressing up a pair of jeans. A bold bag and a nice shirt can make an affordable look very tasteful, especially for a student in college like myself. Another style tip is to invest in the basics, and buy trendy pieces that are in style at budget-friendly stores like Forever 21 and H&M.”
