Earn Your Stripes!

Gotta be honest, this is my first time to do stripes top and bottom. Knowing that the summer was all about stripes I decided to go all out! The trick is knowing how to blend. I did my research because I know if done wrong, I could end up looking like a barcode or worse…a candy cane. So here is what is what I personally found that worked for me:

1. Stick to same colors for both top and bottom

2. Vertical stripes (make me look thinner & taller PLEASE!)

3. Choose bottoms as the prominent color

4. Pick either top or bottom as the “flowy” piece

5. Simple jewelry

Stripes have turned into one of those neutrals for every season. A “go to” of mine is pairing a stripe top with denim or slacks, so it was definitely a challenge for me to step out a bit with stripes on stripes. But I did it! And it shows that putting together an outfit like this one can be elegant and add a ton of style - so be daring girlies!
