I'm all about publishing stories that can inspire you to work with your existing wardrobe to create fresh new combos. This, however, is not one of those stories. (Unless you're like, a fashion savvy lady leprechaun.)
This, my friends, is a case of holy petunias I gotta go shopping because wearing a full blown rainbow -what childhood dreams are made of- has become not only acceptable, but HiGh fA$i0n!
Although stripes have been a fashion staple since long before Waldo went missing, the Spring/ Summer 2016 trend takes stripes on a wild new journey- and not necessarily in straight lines or equal widths. And when it comes to colors... the more the merrier!
Check out the trends and styles below for what to look for and how to wear it, then check back later this week for where to shop!
From a foot wide, to half an inch thin, you can't go wrong with stripes if they check off all the boxes in ROY-G-BIV. Go ahead and taste that rainbow, y'all.
Narrow with Black
Slightly more tame, but no less powerful, a thin stripe alternating with black somehow walks the line (get it?) of preppy-sweet and edgy-cool.
A super fresh spin on the stripe mixes and matches a range of widths, as well as brights with pastels.
Don't stop at prints! Stripes were created with stitching, lace, ruffles, beading, raffia and faux fur for spirited yet sophisticated clothing.
Movement, Curves and Zig-Zags
This is your stripes. This is your stripes on drugs. WoooOohoOHoooOoOoOoOoOOOooOoOOOO!!
