Spring for the STRIPES Fashion Trend

Stripes Fashion Trend

This season, there’s a stripe for everyone… In fact, stripes should be considered the newest neutral in your closet! As useful as all the black, white, and basic pieces you’ve gathered over the years.

On one hand, stripes have sailor-style and a playful punch, and yet, they also have a grounding authority that can deliver maximum masculine moxie. Play with vertical (for elongation) and horizontal (for statement-making) stripes of varying widths to bring a new depth and perspective to any outfit.

So get in line… Here’s how to earn your stripes in the stripes fashion trend!

The Pants

The quickest way to elongate your legs is to wear vertically striped pants. Make sure the waistband sits as high as possible and the hemline sweeps the floor for extra length. Add a high heel for height, but choose a block heel that won’t get caught in the pooling hem.

The Dress

On a loose dress, vertical and horizontal stripes are equally flattering, but for a bold statement, the wider the better. If the dress is fitted, choose vertical lines for a frame that complements every figure.

The Skirt

Break out of your basic pencil shape. By playing with exaggerated proportions and an asymmetric cut, a striped skirt can be directional. Or, a classic A-line worn with a fitted black turtleneck lends an elegant 1960s attitude.

The Shirt

One striped shirt is never enough, but the one style to favor for a this-season update is an oversized shape in a cobalt blue and white. To ensure that it doesn’t overwhelm you, and to guarantee figure definition, tuck into the waistband of high-waisted jeans or a navy pencil skirt.

The Shoe

As you step into spring, it’s time to move away from boots and towards shoes that are a little more revealing. Striding out in a striped pump is the perfect step forward – looking as polished with jeans as they do with slip dresses.
