Stripes never really go out of style. The iterations tend to change every season, but the print is a classic that everyone loves. For spring 2016, designers went bold with color and texture. Think bright summer shades going horizontally, vertically, and diagonally all on the same outfit. Not easy to pull off, huh? That’s where we come in, always ready to help! Here’s a few ways to wear more than one stripe without looking like you got dressed in the dark.


Striped pants are an intimidating look, but they can actually be very flattering. Look for a tapered or skinny pair with a vertical stripe to create the illusion of mile-long legs. The classic pinstripe button-down shirt under a striped sweater adds a funky twist to the theme. Add heels and a tote and you’re ready for the work day.

The ease of a t-shirt and a skirt never gets old. This look is just dressy enough for running around the city and just casual enough for running around the boardwalk. A colorful striped skirt can be worn with stripes on top if you match the color palettes.
