Our style contributor Janine have recently inspired us with stripes. She gave us tips on how to wear stripes, a hot trend this spring and summer, and she also showed us three cute ways she wear striped prints.
What I love about spring stripes is that while they look very fresh for spring, they can also be easily transitioned for summer. From sailor stripes to rainbow stripe prints and up to clashing bright stripes, we´ve seen plenty of inspirations from the runway. Today, we´ll talk about the top striped pieces I´m dying to wear which I´m pretty certain you´d adore too.
Diagonal vs Vertical Elegant Stripes
The first in my list is this contemporary and ladylike Black Fleece’s striped silk-voile dress with gorgeous diagonal pattern giving an optical illusion because of it´s vertical underlay. Cinching the waist with a slim contrast belt or something in nude will give you more shape.
Elongate Your Legs with Striped Jeans
The number one aim of every lady when it comes to dressing up is to lengthen her vertical line. In other words, outfits that make you look taller. This Striped high-rise flared jeans from Alice + Olivia definitely help you to achieve that. You can either pair with it a neutral colored sweater or a bold monochromatic top.
Lady-like in Striped Skirt
When it comes to summer, a mini is always in my must-have list. This time, I´m leaning over to a feminine stripe mini skirt. Worn with a girly kitten heels, ballet flats or wedges, this skirt is a good way to have tanned legs.
Comfy and Striking Striped T-Shirt
An organic cotton t-shirt is very comfortable to wear in summer, no question about that. But when I saw this fab cotton t-shirt in stripes, there´s only thing I´ve in mind – wear it with an orange colored jeans!
Multi-functional Striped Scarf
Be it as an accent to a tank top, worn as a headgear or as a coverup for your beach wear, there´s always a good reason to award yourself a very versatile striped scarf this summer. For more ideas, see the 3 Ways to Wear Short Scarf for a More Fashionable Look.
The Perfect Summer ballerinas
I love ballet flats and for summer, I´m digging a pair of stripes that fit comfortably for a good stroll at the city on a warm afternoon. Wear it with your favorite monochromatic summer dress or with a pair of dressy shorts.
Stand Taller Stylishly
Want to go 5.5 inches taller this summer? How about a pair of multicolored striped heels to turn heads? She´ll look great with black or white jeans but she´s more perfect for a mini dress with full skirt.
The Trendy Striped Clutch
Nope, she´s not for invitation only because she already ran out of stock. Girls are just so loving this striped enveloped, that much! This clutch will go with a black dress and is also suitable to dress up a pair of jeans. This item is from JCrew so watch for it in case it comes back in stock. Otherwise, search for its paternal twin.
Most-Coveted Dior Stripes
A summer outfit isn´t complete without a pair of oversized sunglasses. This summer, why not take your shades up tp a notch? This Dior number in stripes promises you a big transformation of your summer looks.
Don´t Forget Your Hat
For a hot summer day, a cute hat is a need. It blocks the sun rays from your face and puts your hair in place for a lil´windy afternoon. I fancy this asymmetrical brim straw hat with stripes designs. Gorgeous for summer!
