One trend that never seems to fade or get old (unlike the peplum trend) is stripes. Thick or thin, horizontal or vertical there are so many different ways to wear stripes which is why it's always a favorite for fashion especially in spring. If you're one to shy away from stripes maybe it's just because you may have never learned how to properly incorporate them into your wardrobe. Besides that what other reason could there be? Stripes have a slimming effect and who doesn’t want to look slimmer? Regardless of whether or not you've rocked the lines before here are some easy tips on styling stripes for spring.
-A fitted slim pencil or midi skirt looks super chic when paired with a chambray shirt layered underneath a thin sweater. Pair up with a pair of ankle booties and you're all set. Another alternative to a skirt is a striped sleeveless dress. Considering the fluctuating temperatures in the spring this is a great way to be able to wear comfortable layers that you can remove or add on depending on the weather.
-Two trends that are also big for spring are palazzo/wide leg trousers and graphic tee shirts. Take them to a new level by pairing up striped pants with a graphic tee. Top with a denim jacket and you've got a total rocker chic vibe.
-For a casual weekend look perfect for hanging out with friends or shopping is a striped shirt. Pair it up with distressed boyfriend jeans and either some chic ballet flats or sandals. To avoid looking too casual or sloppy, add some arm candy and a great statement necklace.
-Don't be afraid to pull double striped duty. The key is to use different sized stripes in coordinating colors to pull this off. For a polished office look, pair up a thick striped coat with a thinly striped top over cigarette pants. For a night look, the same concept applies but instead pair up a striped blazer with a striped top over skinny jeans and strappy heels.
-Remember that striped dress you love? Change it up by adding a floral belt to it and a pop of color with colored shoes to make a easy yet fun spring look.
