Trending into Summer with Stripes

Stripes are a classic and they are currently trending this spring and I forecast that they will trend well into summer.  As I mentioned in a previous post about stripes, there is a stripe out there for everyone; stripes can be flattering depending on their size.  Wide stripes will look different on you than thin stripes: Wide stripes can have a tendency to accentuate curves, while thin stripes can have a slimming or neutral effect on your shape.

How to Wear It

Stripes can be your statement piece or your neutral.  Below, my striped top is my statement piece.  I paired my stripped top with black culottes and lace-up flats to add some texture to the overall look. Also, my flats add some necessary body at my feet to balance out the stripes above.  I popped on a red lip because I love red lips with anything stripped or polka dotted!
