Effortless Stripes

Stripes are my favorite pattern and I’m always looking for ways to incorporate them into my outfits.  It’s such a classic pattern that will never go out of style and I just love the way it gives outfits an effortless laid back feel.  Best of all stripes are super easy to dress up or down and can be worn as an accent in the form of accessories or even shoes.   During the warmer seasons stripe exude a nautical vibe but it’s such a versatile pattern that it can stand on its own in any season and in any color (although my personal fave is basic black and white).  Famous fashionista’s like Olivia Palermo and Kim Kardashian wear stripes flawlessly year after year but you don’t need to break the bank to wear this trend. Check out some cool striped pieces from Target below and how to incorporate them into your spring wardrobe.  Tip:  When shopping for stripes always keep in mind that the smaller the stripe the smaller you look – and that goes for accessories as well.

A striped linen blazer will give any of your basic favorites a polished look.  Wear over a tank or tee with cut off shorts or jeans.

Striped Linen Blazer – $30 | Denim Shorts – $20 | Graphic Tee – $18 | Quilted Cross Body Bag – $19.99 | Thong Sandals – $19.99

Striped tank tops are a must have for every season and style!  I have probably a dozen in tons of colors and styles and I let them peek out underneath tees, sweaters and jackets.

Stripe Cowl Neck Tank – $14.99 | Pleated Maxi Skirt – $20 | Pullover Shrug – $11 | Laverne Flip Flops – $14.99 | Chiffon Crossbody – $26.99 | Straw Fedora – $12.99

I love me a striped skirt!  A casual “Audrey Hepburn” like piece that’s perfect for spring and summer nights.

Stripe Skirt – $19.99 | Lace Top – $17.99 | Stripe Thong Sandal – $19.99 | Envelope Clutch – $19.99

A striped boat neck sweater is the epitome of spring!  Give it a go with bright skinny jeans and heels.

Stripe Boat Neck Sweater – $22.99 | Colored Skinny Jeans– $22.99 | Button Down – $18 | Pointy Toe Pump – $39.99 | Envelope Clutch – $24.99

This peplum and stripe dress is so chic and flattering (click here to see Kourtney Kardashian in a peplum and stripe outfit).  The peplum can help create curves and flatter those who have them while the thin stripes provide all the style.  Pair with a denim jacket and a colored belt for some extra oomph.

Stripe Peplum Dress – $24.99 | Platform Pumps – $29.99 | Satchel – $29.99

It’s Time for Springtime.

Stripes For All Seasons

Stripes, especially black and white, are one of my favorite prints for all year round (they will never go out of style!).  During the summer stripes can give outfits a classic, nautical feel (perfect example seen here) and for cooler weather they stand out among solids.  They key is to let the stripes do all the work…for example, if pairing with florals keep the print dainty; if wearing with bright colors, keep lines simple.  And remember, stripes can be rocked in a lot ways whether hats, layered tanks, or scarfs (just make sure not to wear the all at once lol).

 

 

 Striped blazer $19.99 at T.J. Maxx, tank top c/o meet mark, skinny mini-flare jeans $19 at Old Navy, black wedges $15 at Charlotte Russe (similar version here), studded bow accent clutch from Yesstyle (also seen here), Penny Wayfarer sunglasses c/o Stunglasses.com, rings c/o meet mark.
