Ask a stylist! – How do I Wear Horizontal Stripes?

Q: How do I wear a striped black & white shirt without looking like the Hamburglar? -Catherine
Ask a stylist Striped top
A: Hi Catherine! Striped shirts are a great wardrobe essential that can be worn a variety of ways. For a casual look, try pairing the shirt with a pair of skinny or straight leg jeans and boots. To break up the stripes a bit, try adding a scarf in a bright color or floral pattern. For a dressier look, try tucking the shirt into a fit and flare skirt.  Add a pair of colored tights and your favorite flats or heels and you have a carefree outfit anchored by color and pattern!

  1. I SO want this scarf and top!! Love both of these!! You don’t even have to wait for my next fix…I’ll bump my date up to get them now! (;

  2. Love the look. I do not own anything with stripes and typcially bypass when shopping but may have to re-think! Love it! The scarf is a great addition!

  3. A quick additional question: do you have tips on thin stripes vs. thick stripes? I’m a somewhat larger woman, esp on top, and am worried that stripes will make my top half even bigger looking.

Leave love!
