Its spring and our favorite print trend is back – stripes! After all, horizontal stripes are an easy way to instantly look chic. This spring is all about mixing it up and experimenting with different looks. From bags to blouses to tops, skirts, and dresses, this is the year of the stripe!
Nothing says spring like a striped dress! From wraps to midis and more, stripes are everywhere when it comes to dresses. Traditionally, stripes on apparel are horizontal, but in 2015, anything goes. Stripes can clash, go diagonally, and every which way, even vertically! Go for white if you want a traditional sping look or try out a multi-colored combo to really stand out in a crowd.
Vertically Striped Skirts
Mix it up with an in between length, try a midi thats ends anywhere past the knee or above the ankle. Don’t be shy about boasting vertical stripes! These skirts are playful and fun, and come in a wide range of colors. Long skirts are slimming and when paired with heels, can give you a long, lean silhouette. For bonus points, mix stripes and pleats for a fancy Wimbledon or school-inspired look.
Slim your figure and look divine at the same time with classic spring shorts! Vertical stripes elongate legs and remain playful, while wide stripes are ideal to color block. Add a solid tank for that perfect, casual look at the lake. Available in a variety of designs and patterns, striped shorts are a good way to play with color while still keeping the basics intact.
Striped Cotton Nautical Shirts
Short and long sleeve shirts get a wave of nautical style with white and navy stripes. These tops are bound to make you look très chic – like you’re headed out on the yacht for a day at sea. Short sleeves mean you won’t overheat, and these shirts go well with a solid bucket bag and some casual ballet flats.
Vertical Striped Button Down Shirt
Why not combine casual and dressy with a long sleeve button up? A button down shirt is the perfect formal look to tuck into a pair of black cigarette pants and heels for an office look that transitions to the street. Conversely, it can be tucked on one side into a pair of shorts and combined with gladiator sandals for a fun, totally laid back spring look.
There are so many ways to wear stripes this Spring! You can let stripes be the star of your look or use them to contrast your favorite solids. Don’t forget to accessorize! Use accessories to achieve a polished, put together look that is fresh and completely on point.
