Trend Alert: Stripes

One trend I always go to come springtime is stripes. They come back every spring season just like spring showers. Stripes instantly give your outfit a Parisian vibe. While wearing striped garments offer a laid back feel, they may be hard to pull off. Here are my tips on how to rock stripes with style!

-Keep It Simple
Stripes easily grab your attention, so try to stay away from attention-graber prints. A perfect muse for stripes is Audrey Hepburn. She kept her look classic by pairing a striped top with some pintuck pants and ballerina flats. A top handle bag is a must for this look.

-Don't Be Afraid of Color
Just because stripes are a classic does not mean you can't modernize them. Adding a splash of color is an easy way to look daring yet chic. Color with stripes also hints at another trend-color blocking. Adding a bright scarf or bottoms quickly updates the retro print.

-Get Beachy with It
When many think of stripes, they automatically think of boats. Go with that thought and try the nautical trend. Think red, white, and blue. Sperry Top Siders or any espadrilles are the ideal shoes. Keep white's crisp for this look.

How will you wear stripes this season?
