The Stripes Trend & How To Wear Them

Who would have thought stripes would be “a thing”?! flashing back to the old days, stripes were referred to whether as inmates’ uniform or a fashion misguide where we were told stripes, especially horizontal ones, make you look wider than you actually are. Okay, I’m being a little dramatic here, Ain’t I? Maybe It wasn’t that bad. It just depends on the type of stripes and how you decide to show the world your sense of style. Opinions, much? It could possibly be a misconception or one would insist there’s a definite truth to that statement. Either way,  my guess is stripes are not going anywhere any time soon. A trend we are to be seeing more and more in the current season and the coming ones. My 10 years old once told me “stripes make everything fun and pretty”. Wouldn’t you agree?  Funny thing is that was exactly my sentiments when I opened my recent haul of shoes where were sitting a pair of striped heels just looking good and looking at me! A typical moment of “the little kid in front of his new toys”.  As the saying goes, pictures are worth a thousand words, so here’s a snap shot of my new striped babies and an equally pretty pair of floral ones, which I’ve shared on IG.

Both shoes are from Just fab

 I’ve spotted quite a few bloggers rocking stripes (I’m sure you have too); and I love how the beautiful blogger at the age of grace is rocking her stripped shirt with these sailors pants.


FABULOUS, isn’t she?! And those sailor pants have been on my wish list for so long, and now they are sold out in my size. Ugh! Stripes on stripes may sound too much for some, but you can totally rock it when done well. I’ve styled quite a few stripped outfits on the blog in the past; and you can check out these post here and here for some inspirations…

Here are some other ways you can wear your stripes. Let me know what your favorite is.

    A great post !
    It is true that we have always heard that the horizontal stripes widen the figure but as you say the question is in the type of stripes and there is no better proof than the photograph of the post, I love that complete look.
    Your new shoes are gorgeous, I want see you with them .
    I have a stripes shoes on my wish list that will surely fall into the shopping cart.
    Kisses, my dear.
