Get The Look: Style Your Stripes

Straight from the runway to your local high street store, stripes are taking center stage. It is a big trend for 2013 and so versatile! But many people shy away from stripes and often don't know a whole lot of ways to wear them. Your welcome, because that problem is now solved ;)

Wear stripes to work: You can wear a striped t-shirt or shirt underneath a sleek pencil skirt to the office. Bonus points if it's a bold colored pencil skirt like purple or green, even red! Wear a blazer on top if you must and accessorize with a simple necklace and dainty rings.

Stripes with neutrals: You can play it safe by pairing a striped top or skirt with neutral clothing and accessories. A black and white palette can be complimented with silver jewelry. Tan accessories also give the hint of a nautical vibe to your stripey outfit.

Stripes and florals: If you want to be playful and a little risky, pair a striped top with a skirt in a floral print, which is very summery and fun! You could also opt for abstract or animal print if you want. 

Accessorize with stripes: Keep it simple in a nautical inspired striped bag, or loafers for a preppy take on stripes. Sticking to accessories is a good way to try out a trend and see if you like it.

Tip: If you are cautious about wearing stripes, stick to smaller stripes at first, it's easier to handle! Also, don't be afraid of horizontal stripes - if you are really nervous about it enhancing your mid-section, just throw a blazer or cardi on top.

I put together a few outfit ideas for you:
