The Season of Stripes

With today being the first day of summer I thought it necessary to write a post on a trend that is literally taking the world by storm and , honestly, has been taking the world by storm for years. Stripes. Essential to any wardrobe stripes give any mundane outfit a bit of pop, while also remaining very minimal.

Stripes don't have to take over the entire outfit, you can have three or two stripes on a shirt as seen on the photo of Olivia Culpo above. Adding two or three stripes gives it a pop while still remaining conservative. I took my take on stripes involved a vertical striped blouse paired with vegan leather shorts and a pointed striped heel. I decided to make the stripe the focal point of the outfit with the two striped pieces. I decided to change the direction of the stripe with the shoe and shirt so that it wasn't so matchy matchy and to avoid "over-striping" my outfit.

I hope you enjoyed my little blurb about stripes! Now go out and enjoy that beautiful summer weather hehe, talk to you soon :)!
