THIS SEASON, WEAR STRIPES IN 8 DIFFERENT WAYS
When it comes to patterns, the traditional stripe is a girl’s best friend. Stripes are flattering on everyone, never go out of style, and can be worn with everything. What’s not to like about that? Stripes should be a staple in every girl’s wardrobe, but if you’re uninspired by the trend or have seen one stripe too many recently, we’ve got some simple methods for you to switch up your stripes and keep your look fresh this season.
The simplest approach to give your basic monochrome stripes some edge is to add some colour to your striped attire. Try pairing colours like vibrant blue and brilliant red with white, or, if you’re feeling brave, play around with a variety of hues. Consider contrasting colours in rainbow brights on a bigger stripe for a panache effect.
Stripes on Stripes
Wear the same striped design from head to toe to up the ante on your stripes. Double or even triple up on striped clothes is our favourite method to modernise the tried-and-true stripe trend. Striped suits are our favourites for a more polished style, but slouchy pairs will give you a more laid-back vibe if that’s what you want. Wearing stripes in different directions can also add intrigue to your outfit and make you feel more unique. Always keep in mind that you can never have too many stripes.
Stripes are one of the most versatile patterns to layer. However, because of their multidimensional features, they provide more depth to your clothing than any solid colour could. For an immediate outfit refresh, add a dash of a basic stripe to your layering arsenal.
Mix and Match Your Prints
Because stripes are the most neutral of prints, they can simply be matched with a contrasting print. Combining stripes with various patterns will instantly transform your look into something uber-cool. We’re all for wild print medleys, and in this case, the bolder the better. Choose one dominant print and one accent print, and if possible, make sure the prints are of different textures. Make sure you have the proper proportions because prints of various scales usually work best. The most important thing to remember is that if the colours look good together, the prints will most likely look nice as well.

Instead of all-over stripes, use a striped sleeve or hem as a subtle indication. A little delicacy goes a long way. Play around with positioning and placement to add some fun and create a statement.
Think Outside The Striped Top
Striped tops are usually the easiest way to wear this trend, but this season try stripes on a jacket, jeans, or skirt. We encourage you to think beyond the box when it comes to your Breton top. Striped accessories, like as a clutch or a pair of heels, will set you out from the crowd.
This season, more is more when it comes to stripes. Stripes don’t have to be boring or predictable just because they’re classic. This season, the print will be multi-colored and multi-directional. The more disjointed, the better! Don’t be afraid to go overboard.
Mix It Up
It’s always nice to have a variety of stripes. Different widths, lengths, positions, depths, and colours offer a wide range of possibilities for experimentation, steering you away from the typical striped clothing.
