Many fashionable women want to express their style with more than just solid colours, but they worry about bold patterns seeming a little over the top. With such a dilemma, stripes are the perfect solution. As popular as ever, stripes serve as a good compromise by staying conservative while allowing those who wear them to separate themselves from the masses clad in solid white shirts.
When paired with the right pieces, stripes can really enhance your figure and keep you looking up-to-date.
Lately, designers have been mixing wide and thin stripes or pairing stripes with floral but such matchups generally don’t work for day-to-day looks. The key to wearing stripes is to always wear just one print matched with a solid. For example, a vertically striped blouse looks great with white trousers or jeans.
Vertically striped pants or skirts can make you look taller and in style when worn with a solid-coloured T-shirt.
