Black and white stripes are a bold new trend for Spring 2013. Love em or hate em, referee stripes are leaving the field. To make sure you don’t look like a Hamburglar, it’s key to inject a bit of colour or a contrasting silhouette to break up the graphic lines.
I’m wearing both striped jeans and a peach blouse from Urban Planet. The shirt is not the best quality, but the jeans were an amazing find for under $30. I like that they are a 3/4 length, which means I can wear them well into summer.
I accessorized with black pumps from Aldo, a vintage envelope clutch and a necklace from Joe Fresh inspired by the ubiquitous J. Crew bubble necklace.
What I love about this trend is how easy it is to put an outfit together that looks trendy and sexy. Just throw on a chiffon blouse or a blazer, cute pumps and you’re good to go. I think stripes are the perfect update on classic blue jeans… except the vertical lines have wondrous lengthening effects you won’t get from your old Levis.
Aahh!! These are great! Just got myself a pair not that long ago and I swear they won’t come off my legs! They like being worn and I don’t mind at all! 😉 Great outfit!!
Oh man, you have awesome style!!
