Wear This Now: Stripes

By Linsibrownson @CleverSpark

It’s May, which means it’s practically summer. Thankfully, not yet the hot-and-sticky summer of August – but rather the breezy and nostalgic days of May and June. And nothing makes me think “summer” and “nostalgia” more than playful stripes.

However, stripes can be tough to pull off for everyone, so here are some tricks to making stripes work for you:

  • Try to keep your stripes thin and symmetrical
  • Make sure they match up on side seams
  • Avoid overly-thin knits which might reveal what’s underneath
  • Avoid nautical embellishments, unless you want a glaringly nautical look
