[H&M striped top]
I got a special request for me to make some sets with different ways to wear stripes & since I just wore them yesterday I thought today would be a great time to post this. Stripes are another trend that's been around for awhile and believe it or not, there's a lot of different ways you can wear them.
It all depends on your personal preference and how much of it you want to wear.
There's a lot going on here, so I'll start from left to right.
These blue/white loafer flats are from RiverIsland.com & I think they're adorable. For a real casual look, these would look great with a pair of dark skinny jeans, a plain white tee & a navy blue blazer. These shoes are a great way to incorporate stripes into your outfit in a more subtle way. These jeans are from J Brand, shirt is Alexander Wang & Blazer from Modcloth.
Next is an outfit with some edge. You can wear a black & tan striped shirt like this one from Oasis with a pair of leggings or black skinny jeans and booties. These leggings are from Warehouse & booties are from French Connection. Put on a leather jacket like this one from Dynamite & add a red scarf to throw in some extra color. This one is from Target.
For a more comfy vibe, try an oversized striped sweater like this blue & white one from TopShop. Wear it over a pair of leggings, these are Monsoon, and a pair of combat boots like these from Jeffrey Campbell. Throw on a white/creme snood like this one from All Saints for extra warmth & texture.
If you want to incorporate more stripes & color, go with a top like this blue/white one from Pure Dash. Wear it with some ripped skinny jeans, these are DSquared & add a red blazer like this one from Warehouse. Put on some red pumps, these are from TopShop & accessorize with a matching striped bag like this one from RI2K. When I think of stripes, I think of red. It's a great color to add to give your outfit that extra something.
Next is this striped skirt from Daphne. You can wear something like this with a tucked in blouse, this one from Soaked In Luxury and put on some Mary Jane pumps like these from Dorothy Perkins. It's a more sophisticated way to wear stripes.
I have a striped blazer jacket from Forever21 that I have posted about before and it's one of my favorites. It's somewhat similar to this one from Chloe & it's a great way to add stripes to your ensemble. You can wear it over a plain black dress similar to this one from Religion Clothing and put on black wedges like these from Steve Madden. And then to add some color, accessorize with a red clutch. This one is Leola.
For something a little sexier and chic, wear a dress like this orange one from Supertrash and pair it with some striped heels. These are LISKA by THOMAS KIRCHGRABNER. I am loving these colors. The shoes are a really nice touch here.
As you can see, there are different looks that you can pull off with stripes. Some people are afraid to wear them, but they can be really fun. As I mentioned before, start off with some striped accessories. You can get a scarf, hand bag, hat, gloves, or shoes and slowly start incorporating them into your wardrobe. Experiment! That's what finding your style is all about :)
