Black and White Striped Jeans

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.

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.
