Question: What are some cute outfits with stripes?

Answer: All aboard the nautical ship! Stripes are a wardrobe staple and look great when boldly executed. When deciding on a stripe of choice, remember the old rule that claims horizontal stripes tend to add on the pounds while vertical stripes create a slimming illusion. Whichever pattern you choose, you can pull off your stripes perfectly if your outfit is styled correctly. Here are five great ways to style stripes!

With Plaid

Plaid paired with stripes makes for an unlikely, but wow-worthy match! Although mixing two prints is risky, you can pull it off as long as the look is well put together and the proportions fit you properly. Marry black and white stripes and bright colors together for a stylish way to stand out!

Dress

Just because stripes are the focal point of your outfit doesn’t mean you have to go all the way with the trend. Ease into this bold look and go for a piece that features stripes as an accent. This ASOS dress with striped paneling is the perfect example!

Layered

Create an entire striped ensemble by layering and mixing different stripes together. Solange Knowles looked great for Vogue last year wearing striped pants and a top in a larger print.

Color

When you’re tired of wearing black and  white, wear your stripes in color!

Footwear

I bet you didn’t think that stripes could look good on your feet. Well, surprise! Espadrilles are amazingly comfortable and when they’re striped, they’re amazingly chic too.

The striped ship is taking off—all aboard!
