2013 Spring Fashion Trend – Stripes

This spring/summer stripes trend is not to be missed. It’s in every store, window display, magazine and commercial. It’s been tailored to suits and added to accessories and whether you choose thick or skinny, horizontal or vertical, this is an a look that can easily be integrated into your spring wardrobe.

This tricky trend can be a little difficult to wear. Wearing horizontal stripes might make someone look wider than they really are. But paired with the right complimentary pieces this spring trend will not only keep you looking up to date but also enhance your figure.

The key to wearing spring stripes is to wear it with a solid. For example, I’m wearing a somewhat thick horizontal striped top balanced out by solid bright bottoms. If you decide to wear vertical stripes this rule also applies. Also, vertically striped pants look great with a solid blouse and can even make you look taller and leaner.

If you don’t feel like wearing stripes on your clothes consider a striped handbag or heel. Like this striped Kate Spade handbag I have my eye on.

    I pretty much live in outfits like this during the summer, so it’s nice to see I’m doing something right!

    Love your casual look, specially the stripped top. I am trying to play more with prints and mixing stripes, floral and dots… it’s risky but also fun!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!
