pg. 22 - bold stripes for spring
Question: "Are there any fun spring trends I should embrace this season?"
Paige: Bold stripes is for sure a trend you want to be apart of this spring. Plus stripes are always fun to wear in general. I can remember a time in my life aka high school that my entire wardrobe was stripped.
Tips for styling a striped top:
- Be aware of how flattering the stripes look on. Certain striped can really do more harm than good. Try out a few different striped looks and see which one complements your figure.
- Your accessories should complement the color pattern but not be too matchy matchy (is that even a word??) You want to either go neutral here or play into the colors of your outfit. Here I decided to semi match the colors of my accessories with an orange belt and bag, while still keeping my jewelry minimal and shoes neutral.
- Mixing patterns is a fine line. A bold stripe doesn't need any competition.
This is defiantly an outfit I would wear to work! Buying a more structured top is a great way to incorporate a bold strip into your work wear. If you don't have the option to wear jeans to work a stripped button down would be a great option to wear. Just add a front tuck, loafers, and your favorite gold hoops.
Here are some options for your closet:
