While I have written quite a lot about stripes in this blog, from styling stripe jacket, wearing stripe skirt, to rocking trendy striped skinny jeans, I´ve covered largely the important parts such as the basic how-tos. But then I realized, I´ve focussed mostly on black and white stripes.
Blame it to the season´s monochrome trend, black and white stripes is one of the hottest mono prints were seeing for spring and summer. But then scanning through Dolce and Gabbana´s spring/summer 2013 runway photos, I realized that bright stripes are just as gorgeous as the black and white. We should have fun wearing the brighter stripes just as much as we have fun with the monos. Here are six looks I´ve created with cute bright stripes.
Bright Stripes Sweater Dress
In choosing for a striped sweater dress, look for one with striking color combination such as blue, black, and white. This sweater dress from Torn embodies a little bit of flirty, eye-catching contrast stripes, and of-the-moment trend. You only need a great black bag and a pair of sexy black shoes to complete it.
Bright Stripes Maxi Dress
Orange is a very interesting color to wear in warm weathers. But more than just the color, this maxi dress also features a daring plunging V-neck, diagonal stripes, and billowing long skirt. It´s definitely a dress perfect to jumpstart you spring or for a summer-ready look. Try it out with wedge sandals, a single bracelet, and a black bag.
Bright Stripes Trousers
Looking for a new way to wear cropped pants? Go for vertical bright stripes cropped pants. White others say that capris shorten your length because they´re cut off around the thickest part of your legs, the vertical lines of your striped pants will offset it. So you need not worry about looking shorter in these pants. You simply have to add platform pumps, a white tee worn tucked in, and a black bag for a casual-smart ensemble.
Modern Striped Jumper
If you can find a great top with bright stripes, whether it´s a tee or a blouse, feel free to team it with a body-hugging skirt in a matching color or in white. I found a blue stripes tee to wear with a neon blue striped con skirt. I added a DÓrsay pump to make your legs look really long, and a black bag. If you can´t find a perfect skirt to match with your top, go for a white skirt instead. Bright colors always float out in white.
Bright Stripes Cashmere Mix Sweater
Here´s a very fabulous look to wear in spring – bright stripes sweater with orange shorts. Notice that the orange color is also present in the sweater. Be warned though, this seat is made of lil´ prices items. They´re designers but as you know, you get what you pay for. Black peep-toe boots and a black bag are your perfect additional.
In case you want to do the reverse, you want to wear bright stripes shorts instead of the top. Here´s a great alternative – striped pajama shorts. You can wear it with a white top or you can choose a color from the print for your top.
Bright Stripes Lace Sleeveless Dressr
When it´s time to go girly for parties, formal events or even to prom, this sleeveless striped lace dress is a to-go to piece. It features two of the season´s trends – stripes and modern lace. Try it out with peep-toe stilettos and a white leather envelope clutch.
What do you think of bright stripes? Is it something you´d love to wear this season?
