usually, stripes get no love. the poor pattern has been known to make us look wide because the eyes are drawn from side to side.
but my second favorite pattern (polka dots is my all-time fave), is making a huge comeback!
so don’t fear….check out these ways to pull off stripes without looking like a zebra:
when the vest is over that cute striped pullover, it’s the perfect amount.
again, when you toss a cardi or sweater over a striped tee, it ads the prefect amount of punch.
or how about this amazing upcycle of an old striped polo? this has been on my to-do list for a long time, maybe i will get around to it this fall.
using a high waisted skirt and sweater makes the stripes a great accessory all by itself.
go with a subtle striped pattern that’s got some punch, but doesn’t punch you in the face.
stripes can be your friend, fear them not!
YOUR HOMEWORK: find a fun way to wear stripes. maybe even on the bottom half. or your shoes. get creative!
and have a blessed week.
