Trend to Try: Stripes

Hello loves!

One of the biggest fashion trends this spring and summer is stripes. Multiple designers showcased stripes in their spring/summer 2013 collections across runways all over the world. With so many different designers embracing stripes it doesn’t take an expert fashionista to know we’re going to be seeing this trend in a big way this season.

It doesn’t matter if the stripes you sport are horizontal, vertical, diagonal, thin or thick… if it’s a series of lines, then it is on trend! There are multiple ways to wear this trend and how you incorporate this trend is up to you, but I thought I would give you a few tips on the hottest ways to pull off stripes.

The biggest tip when it comes to wearing stripes is to remember, horizontal strips draws the eye from side to side and vertical stripes draws the eye from top to bottom… if you’re wanting a more slimming look, always go with vertical lines. If you’re daring enough to jump right into this trend, a great way to do that is with a dress. If you want to get a taste of the trend, but not ready to fully commit to a full striped look, try test driving the trend with a pair of fun heels or handbag. Here are a few of my favorite ways to wear this trend:


Aldo Perrysburg Stripe Shopper Bag, $68


Stripe Hilo Hem Dress  by Express, $80


Papaya – Navy Sailor Stripe by Jessica Simpson, $90


Stripe Block Long Sleeve Button Up Blouse by bebe, $79


Dani Crepe Stripe Dress by French Connection, $65

What is your favorite way to rock the stripes trend this season?
