4 ways to look fashionable in stripes

Stripe patterns have been dominating the fashion runways. Renowned designers such as Marc Jacobs, DKNY, Alexander Wang and Diane von Furstenberg have all featured stripes in their recent Spring/Summer 2013 collections.

Need help with initiating stripes into your wardrobe? Here are 4 ways you can wear stripes:

Classy & Sophisticated
To carry off a classic look, wear separates such as a plain blouse and striped skirt with a bright but simple accessory to give your outfit a splash of colour.

Sweet & Sexy
Convey a hint of sensuality by wearing a plain black camisole under a sheer striped blouse or put on a tea length dress and pair it with vertical striped hosiery.

Glamour Barbie
For a glamourous appearance, dress up a pair of striped trousers with a sequined top and sky-high heels. Alternatively, put on a bold striped dress and match it with a glittery clutch.

Bold & Beautiful
If you’re confident and willing to take risks with fashion, why not try mixing and matching stripes with florals and plaid? The key thing to remember is to mix only prints with the same colour family.

For a lot of people, wearing stripes can be a daunting feat. Stripes are eye-catching and striking, more so when they are thick and bold. Start by introducing a small dosage of stripes to your outfit if full-on bold stripes scare you!
