One reason why stripes often comes back as a trend is because it´s a classic print. It´s very versatile and can work with both monochrome and other prints. But when it comes to stripes, striped jacket is something not everybody is able to brave. Is it just me or is it really that you won´t see lots of striped outerwear in the streets? Well, here are three looks to inspire you to wear stripe jacket for street outfits all year round.
Stripe Blazer with White Pants
A black and white blazer looks great with white, whether it´s a pair of white pants or a white skirt. Add another striking print to the look through your shoes, the leopard print pumps really floats out when paired with white. To have some touch of color, layer under your jacket a bright mono top. This outfit is perfect for spring.
Stripe Jacket with Black Leather Skirt
Ever wonder how to wear leather skirt in winter? Team it with striped jacket or coat and layer with black tights. Temper the darkness of this look with a nude top, it softens everything. To keep things edgy, opt for a pair of black ankle boots.
Stripe Blazer with Printed Dress
Although many fashionistas wonder if you can throw a stripe jacket over a printed dress and still look right, you can actually do this by applying the right clashing of prints technique. Make sure your blazer has vertical stripes to create a clear contrast between the prints. For fall, layer a striped jacket or coat over a printed, colorblocked sheath dress, add some black tights and black shoes. While this is a work of black and white mix, it embodies sophistication and at the same time, as it sufficiently absorbs the heat, keeps you warm.
But for sunny days, put your hands on more upbeat prints such as a floral print dress. Make sure however, that your print is not of shocking, oversized florals. You´ll never go wrong if you choose dark floral print or bright florals with black details in the dress, they´re perfect to complement a black/white striped coverup. Finish off with a pair of gorgeous sandals.
What do you think of striped jacket? Is it something you´re willing to wear for street outfits? Would you dare to wear stripes with other prints?
