Okay. So you're ready to take the plunge into the magical land of rainbow stripes, but you're a leeeetle worried you'll end up looking like an under-age, over-dyed easter egg who's all dressed up with no place to go cause it lost all its friends over poor outfit choices.
Well first, get new friends because those sound awful.
And second, take a style cue from these fierce and fearless ladies who have mastered the rainbow stripe, all while looking age appropriate, seasonally aware, and like they know what the hell is up.
For day, try pairing a bright, bold stripe with menswear pieces in simple neutrals, like army green, white, navy, and grey. This will act to tone the look down- think of it as adding a classy splash of soda to your vodka as opposed to a knock-you-off-your-chair shot-to-the-face.
To dress the rainbow pieces up, you're always safe layering with all black. Or, for a more festive flair, experiment with metallics- like turning your vodka into a champagne cocktail- but keep silhouettes more modest to be sure you're enjoying said cocktail in 2015, and not at studio 54.
Shop rainbow stripes below, for pieces that are decidedly fall in fabrication, shape, and hue, and you can thank me later when you can't stop smiling ♥
