Stripes are back in a big way for summer/spring 2013. Designers like Tommy Hilfiger, Oscar de la Renta and Michael Kors all played with striped ensembles within their 2013 S/S collections. We saw stripes in all different types of incarnations from sporty cropped trousers to full length chevron striped gowns and everything in between. Many women tend to shy away from striped fashion thinking that the print will be unflattering for the figure. But on the contrary, a properly tailored striped outfit can be very flattering and create the illusion of a more tapered waistline and a narrower body shape. This spring stripes are coming in all various shades of color from bright and bold neon to soft and feminine pastel. We highly recommend giving this look a try and below you’ll find a few of our favorite ways to rock the striped look.

Striped Maxi Skirt

A light weight chevron striped maxi skirt as an excellent addition to your spring wardrobe. Go for the classic black and white stripes or liven things up with a flowery pastel hue. Pair your skirt with a simple white tank top and nude sandals and you’ll be looking effortlessly chic in no time.


Striped Fitted Midi Dress

A vertical striped fitted midi dress would be perfect for the office with the addition of a solid color blazer and classic black pumps. The dress will show off your shape while the stripes will help to enhance the “hour-glass” waist us women are always trying to achieve. If you want to make this look a little more festive then think about adding a neon skinny belt to add in an extra pop of color.


Striped Button Down Shirt

A stripped bottom down can be worn with everything from casual shorts to a polished pencil skirt. A striped button down is one of the best and simplest ways to rock the striped fashion trend.
