STYLE GURU STYLE: Simply Striped Out

Stripes, an icon pattern in many fashion pieces. It’s a trend that never goes out of style. Season to season you can always find people sporting stripes. It can range from dresses, to shirts, and even shorts and pants. You never know what will be appearing in season with stripes.

In the Elie Saab spring 2016 ready-to-wear runway show, a few of her looks featured stripes. Many of the looks in the show were outfits you could take from day to night. They all had much versatility to them. They were pieces that could be worn separately or together to create a different and unique look each time. I took inspiration from this show into my look.

For my look, my main focus was on my black and white striped dress. This dress can be worn day or night to give off a more casual or sophisticated-vibe. I was going for a more dressed up look. I was wearing it out for a night with the girls. To go with the dress, I paired a gray lightweight cardigan from Calvin Klein. For shoes I added a pair of Banana Republic tan heeled sandals. I tried to stick with neutrals throughout to make the look cohesive. My accessories included some silver rings and bracelets.

I kept my makeup natural, and did a half up half down look for my hair which has become a summer go-to for me because of how easy it is to do. It adds a nice touch to almost any look. Sticking with neutrals allowed the dress to stand out and make the look a perfect going out outfit.
