Get it Right, Get it Stripe.Every women fears horizontal stripes quite possibly more than most things- quite possibly more than missing Girls on a Sunday night, or when someone has your last sip of wine (no like seriously who does that..). We are taught from a young age… do not, whatever you do, wear horizontal stripes. We’ll, we’re here to say no way jose!!! We love stripes done right… Get it right, get it Stripes.
Stripes have to be in the right piece- often times the issue with horizontal stripes is there is simply too much. It becomes overwhelming- like is this a dress or are you wearing binder paper (WTF, much?). Lauren and Danielle enjoy stripes in simpler pieces, such as the t-shirt Danielle is wearing in this post.
Pairing becomes incredibly important with stripes. It is important to pick pieces that will compliment the colors in a unique way- i.e navy and the pastels. It really makes the stripes pop- in a good way. (One time Danielle wore this top with Red, same color scheme but not good. Uncle Sam anyone?) Danielle wanted something still chic but casual, so the wedges were perfect to pair with for a long day at work and to transition for drinks with friends- how cute are the tassels on the zipper??
Pastels are great in jackets because they pair so well with neutrals or classic white button down shirts. Not only are they on-trend for 2014, but pastel jackets are truly an investment piece worth making because they are timeless because of their versatility. Dress up or dress down, up to you!
We love wearing simple t-shirts and statement necklaces- its a great and unique contrast that we are currently obsessing over.
Get it right, Get it stripes!
