Stripes Are In This Season
Last winter was all about solids and muted color tones, but this year is all about bold, colorful, and patterns. While you might think of plaid when you think of winter, stripes are actually the "it" pattern this season. Whether you're wearing pin strips, horizontal stripes, thin stripes, or thick stripes, the point is to wear stripes as often as possible to get the most out of this season's hottest fashion trend.
Don't Overdo It
While stripes are a great look this season, wearing too much of something can cause your outfit to look busy. Pick one garment with a stripe pattern and then wear solids for the rest of your outfit. For instance, a striped sweater with jeans or a pair of pinstripe trousers with a solid-colored top would be ideal.
There are a few exceptions where you could wear a striped top and bottom. A pinstripe suit, for example, is acceptable as long as a solid-colored top is worn underneath it. A striped two-piece swim suit is another option where a top and bottom can both be striped.
Stripes Are Great For All Shapes And Sizes
The belief that horizontal stripes make you look wider is false and couldn't be further from the truth. Horizontal stripes look great on people of all different shapes and sizes.
If you're worried about stripes making you look wider, simply choose vertical stripes or stripes that consist of neutral colors like brown, cream, and gray. The bolder the stripe, the more noticeable the pattern is. To achieve the look of stripes without it being overpowering, stick with subtle colors.
Thin Vs. Thick
Thin stripes are more appropriate for work attire because they look more professional and don't stand out as much as thick stripes do. Thick stripes are great for when you're looking for a bold look that gets you noticed. If you want to pull off thick stripes at work and still look professional, choose understated colors like brown, cream, gray, black, and white.
