Does anyone else get about a million emails from different stores they’ve subscribed to? I know I do. And I kind of love it. As much as getting a ton of emails can be annoying, shopping emails hold little nuggets of gold aka potential clothes to be worn. This past week I started seeing a trend in the emails: stripes.
Stripes are a timeless classic. Love them or hate them in the world of fashion you are hard pressed to go your life without owning a stripe or too. Personally, I love any pattern with a good striation so I warmly embraced this trending style. Both the stripped short sleeve shirt and the little black dress are pieces I have had in my closet for multiple years, and I JUST NOW realized how cute they go together. Don’t you love that when you are able to make a brand new outfit out of old clothes? It’s like a breath of fresh creative air is breathed into your closet.
If you’re anything like me, I often fall prey to fashion ruts where I just don’t feel like I LOVE or ENJOY what I’m wearing. Doesn’t that suck? Thankfully, this surge of stripes gave me some renewed inspiration this week. So for anyone out there who is struggling to find fulfillment in their existing clothes options, reach for any striped garment you have, pair it with something fun like another pattern (BOLD MOVE AND I LOVE IT), layer a dress over a stripped shirt or button up, or go with a simple but preppy, stripped top and white jeans!
Here I played around with different tassel earring options (all of which can be found on my shop page!)
I love the big orange and white tassel earrings to give this look a bold, high fashion edge, while the pink and white hoop tassel earrings keep things fun without calling too much attention (#introvert anyone?).
I hope you enjoyed this trend and are inspired to wear stripes in any form or fashion this week!!
