There are different ways of wearing stripes. Let us have a look at the basic outfit choices;
One of the easiest and maybe the basic forms of wearing stripes is simply pairing a striped blouse or any other top with a pair of jeans.
A loose-fitting shirt will be a wise choice for a curvy body. If you are fat in the tummy area, better opt for loose striped tops, rather than define it.
It’s also a good idea to wear a striped shirt or tee with a simple black bottom. Indeed, whenever wearing stripes the classical way is keeping to black or white. Since the stripes already become visual, you can break the tone down by choosing black or white. If you have a curvy midsection, go for something with high-waist paired with a loose-fitting striped top.
If you have a tiny top and curvy bottom, then you can opt for a dress with a vertical striped top part and a one-coloured bottom. The bottom will look ideal, as it is, without adding any volume. Whereas the thin top part will visually become fuller.
Opt for stripes of other colors. Of course, you can go as bright or clashing as you like if you are ready for a change.
Take different colors of stripes and combine them with the rest of your outfit. Best combinations are: red and white, light brown and black, which resembles the leopard print, blue and white and so on.
Pair stripes with a neutral color if you want to feel safe. If you’re just starting to wear stripes, wear them with a block of color on your other half. A striped skirt with a plain top can look fabulous, as can a striped top with a plain skirt or jeans. Emphasize only one part of the body.
And always keep in mind, the wider the stripe, the bolder the statement. If you’re hesitant about stripes, try pinstripes at first and once you feel comfortable in them make your way for wider stripes.
