Seeing Stripes

Recently I have spotted more than one stylish celebs sporting the striped look. Personally I like stripes in both bi-color and multi-color styles for the casual relax fashion. Granted, a gal does need to be careful when wearing stripes because we can easily look horizontally challenged by accident. I got a striped dress last season in diagonal pattern which worked out quite well for me.

1. Black and White Striped Dress $98 by Eight Sixty via Nordstrom
2. Red and White Striped Dress $94 by Paul Smith via Zappo (1 and 2 are my favorites)
3. Multi-color Striped Dress $184 by T-BAG Picnic Stripe via Revolve Clothing --- I don't think I can sport a long colorful maxi dress but a short one might be savvy for someone of my height.

5. Black and White Striped Mini Dress $160 via Net-a-Porter

What about you, are you into stripes this season?

  9. I like them, esp. because they're on a cool style like the maxi or are broken up by solid blocks or trim.

  14. I am SO into stripes this season! I saw #1 in person at Nordstroms from across to store and ran over to it I loved it so much (but didn't buy it b/c i'm supposed to be saving money- wahhh), but I did get a really cute striped cardigan from the bp department that you should check out.. here's the link: http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/3114499/0~2378467~2378483~6027430?mediumthumbnail=Y&origin=category&searchtype=&pbo=6027430&P=1
    I've gotten SO much use out of it already!

  16. I always love stripes! I heard that if you choose thinner stripes that are close together, you minimize the horizontal effects.

  17. Love your choices! I will never never tire of stripes!

  18. I love stripes, but I'm getting to an age (okay fine, a size) where the horizontal ones make me a bit nervous. Time to do some sit-ups!
