Style File: Graphic Stripes

I remember hating stripes in high school. One day I wore a black and white striped top with white pants to school and I regretted my decision immediately. The brutal boys in the lunch room called me a referee so needless to say, I tucked the shirt away and didn’t look back.

I love stripes now, and following the trend event show I attended last week, I’m really excited to incorporate more stripes into my wardrobe. If only I held on to that top…..

My sister e-mailed me a link to BCBG’s website on how to wear graphic stripes and color blocks. I was inspired to dig a little deeper to see what I can find. Here’s what I came up with. It was so hard to narrow it down to 5 pieces!

  1. Forever 21 Dress
  2. Ruche Dress
  3. Kate Spade Umbrella 
  4. American Eagle Striped Hat (I LOVE!)
  5. Tilly’s Top
