Stripes have long been a staple in our closets but this Spring, we’re taking it to the next level. How? It’s all about pops of color this Spring 2011 and that’s exactly what stripes are getting this season.
Take a look at some of our tips on how to wear the Stripe trend!
1. Make it Big
The Stripes this season aren’t those thin stripes. Make sure to choose those big stripes to make it hip and now. Check out Isabel Marant SS 2011 for inspiration.
2. Make it Colorful
While black and white are classic stripes, it’s best to add in pops of color. Blue, green, pink and orange stripes are perfect to mix with black and white stripes. Check out Jil Sander SS 2011 for inspiration.
3. Wear it with Prints
If you’ve been fond of the print on print trend from past seasons, you can continue doing so by mixing in stripes with other prints such as florals and other abstract prints. The stripe is actually the easiest print to mix with almost about anything. Check out Balenciaga and Moschino SS 2011 for inspiration.
4. Stripe on Stripe
Another growing trend is mixing stripe on stripe. To keep the look polished, mix in two pieces that share at least one color in their stripes such as black! Check out Prada SS 2011 for inspiration.
