How to: Stripes Fashion Trend

Stripes have become a great component of modern fashion trends and you’ll see all sorts of great tops featuring a variety of different stripe patterns. Stripes are really nothing new, but their popularity has certainly surged in recent years and there are a variety of great ways to incorporate stripe patterns into your closet.  Below are a few great examples of different stripes in different types of clothing i.e. tanks, short sleeve, long sleeve, sweaters so that you can get a variety of possibilities and great stripe styles.

First consider the Skye V Neck Dress by designer Ella Moss.  This eastern inspired dress style features metallic stripes in a charcoal grey color as contrast.  The stripes are diagonal and for added contrast are horizontal in the back.  We love the metallic stripe which is such a popular trend in fabrics right now and in addition love the deep chocolate brown color.  A great dress from Ella Moss this dress features an empire waist and kimono style v neck.  This dress is the perfect fashion statement piece with a great example of trendy stripes.

If you’re looking for short sleeve tops with stripes consider designer Collective Concepts.  Known for great patterns and designs and distinctive fabrics, Collective Concepts styles are innovative and our favorite piece actually features wide horizontal stripes in contrasting colors.  We love the Lace Trim Stripe Tank.  This tank features a racerback and lace trim around the shoulders for added contrast.  This tank is a great loose fitting way to incorporate modern stripe patterns into your wardrobe in summer.

When it comes to long sleeve tops, designer Splendid has a great way of infusing stripes into their clothing styles.  One distinctive top that we love for their great style trends canvassed on a great contrasting stripe.  We love that this stripe pattern features navy and then is contrasted with either pink or mud a light brown color.  The Navy Slub Puff Sleeve Top features a puff around the shoulders, a Henley neckline with a v neck.  The top also includes ¾ length sleeves and most importantly are the stripes.  We love the color of the stripes in either the pink or the mud color and this top is a great example of feminine style mixed with stripes.

Splendid also designed the Cotton Stripe Tie Cardigan another example of wide stripes with a distinctive style design for the sweater.  This wrap sweater features a tie around the waist and a bold fold over neckline.  We love wearing this sweater over a navy solid long sleeve top or another great bold color for contrast.  It is a great long length sweater and the stripes do give it an added edge.

All of these are just the tip of the iceberg of different ways to wear the stripe patterns in your current wardrobe.  There are most certainly a number of other designers and styles with great stripes, but we wanted to point out that you can literally incorporate stripes into almost every facet of your wardrobe from tanks to dresses and sweaters.  Just be sure that you don’t overwhelm your outfit with too many stripes or contrasting stripe patterns and we always recommend that you steer clear of vertical stripes wherever possible as they are not flattering.
