All About Stripes
Today is all about stripes as I model a striped dress, tote bag and even shoes with stripes!
Sometimes I think stripes can be hard to wear. I always heard that horizontal stripes can make one appear heavier, but the style of this dress seems to flatter the figure rather than add heaviness. I like the way the stripes change on the pocket and sleeve with a wider dark band at the end of the sleeve to add interest.
I changed up the look a bit by adding my Gloria Vanderbilt jean jacket. The blue striped tote bag was a gift from my Secret Pal at work. I like how the blue and white striped bag compliments the black and white of the dress and jacket.
And notice the striped bands on my Skechers wedge sandals. I've styled these before but really like the look of these shoes with this dress. I'm experimenting with blue nail polish which is a different look for me and also matches the tote bag. What do you think? Do you try nail polish colors that aren't the "traditional" colors such as pink or red?
I chose several of my favorite pieces of jewelry to wear with this outfit. I love the look of black and silver together as you can see on the necklace, two bracelets and hook earrings.
A final hint of blue is added with one of my favorite rings. This band style was purchased at Dakota Jewelers in Estes Park, Colorado.
I have to say that I believe this is my most favorite outfit that I have styled on the blog so far. The look works well for me and I know I'll be wearing it frequently this summer. It's a keeper for sure!
How about you? Do you enjoy wearing stripes? Do you have a "look" that works well for you? Hope you'll leave me a message and share!
