Take a good look of the stripes pattern you have in your closet, how many of those are black and white, and how are many are brights? Most of my stripes are monochrome, or navy blue and white. Today though, I saw how the brand Tommy Hilfiger encourages women to embrace the brighter side of stripes. Whether it´s t-shirt, sweater or bag, their stripes are in different bright + vivid colors.
I have here three outfits I came up with using three of the stripe pieces I found from the Tommy Hilfiger brand, but remember, each of them are available in many more bright colors.
Oh, and by the way, I just feel the need to mention that my husband buys his jeans from this brand, he´s a long-time loyal customer. That´s why now, I´m planning to get my first Hilfiger denim soon.
1. Classic Multistripe Sweater
Go back to your classic multistripe pattern but pick up one in a refreshing Turquoise and white combo. But this sweater is also available in dark blue, soft peach, coral red, and amaranth pink. So just pick your own fave color. For me though, I love any light shades of blue.
Wearing the sweater with white shorts and white fashion sneakers gives a truly fresh to eyes, very neat get-go.
2. stripes cross body bag
Here´s a feminine layering of bright solids, bright stripes + white. I actually started this outfit with the bag. I´m a fan of this posy green cross body bag and I love how the neutral brown straps and accents flattered the color.
Then I cross matched the bag with a pink plain t-shirt and a pair of neon pumps. Then I added white jeans to soften the colors. And lastly, to make you fall-ready, I layered a soft, blossom print cape that complements the colors in your combination.
Remember that the bag is also available in Raspberry.
3. stripe t-shirt + frilling skater skirt
In this outfit, you´ll see the blending of casual sports with feminine dressy elements. I picked a wide stripes V-neck t-shirt in Persian Green and white, and teamed it with a frilling soft beige skater skirt. You can wear this outfit in late summer or early fall. I polished up the look with some wedge sandals and a neutral travel tote.
Let me know what you think of bright stripes. How do wear this pattern?
