Hi it’s been some time since I last wrote a blog, as I have been slightly busier than normal so I thought it was time now to squeeze one in!
This time I will be sharing my thoughts on how to style yourself in striped outfits for this seasons summer 2018! Firstly stripes can be styled with other garments that could be with jeans or you can go for a whole outfit in stripes. I bought a striped red and white shirt dress from H&M a few weeks ago, and still have not worn it yet as I haven’t found the right type of footwear to go with this dress. Below there is a image of it for you to see.
So here I have a couple of suggestion ideas on dressing this striped red and white shirt dress, a pair of white chuck converse and a pair of wedged red espadrille sandals would look great with this dress! Red Espadrilles sandals are from M&S @ £19.50
This shirt dress comes slightly small on the chest area so bear this in mind and go for a size bigger than the size you are! I went and bought a size 8 thinking it was going to fit, turned out I had to get it in a size 10 and I love that it has a belt to tie to cinch in at the waist. I would definitely consider wearing this dress with white trainers for a casual look and wear it with red or white espadrilles white wedge sandals for a more formal day look.
Next up we have two striped tops from Missguided that you can wear with denim jeans.
Navy Stripe Crop Top – £20.00 Red Stripe Ruffle Sleeve Wrap Top – £20.00
These styles look great on with denim as the tops are cropped you can wear them with high waist jeans or as the model is wearing with the red stripe ruffle sleeve top, a denim floral skirt. Basing on this stripe styling, trainers would look great on for foot wear or flat mule type sandals. My daughter has purchased both these tops so I am intrigued to see what they will look like on.
In New Look stores they have the Rochelle Edit collection also in this summer seasons stripes. You can look online or go to their stores and check out this collection as its inspiring to see celebs collaborating with stores and modelling the styles that are in this summer season. Rochelle is certainly rocking this summer look with this Bardo rainbow striped Knit top!
Here we have THE Rochelle EDIT collection featuring the Rainbow Stripe Knit Cropped T-Shirt @ Newlook.com – £12.99
Outer wear styling in stripes is also out for this years Spring/Summer styles too image below we have a striped blazer with a t-shirt and jeans for a formal casual look or you can dazzle the eyes of some walking down the streets wearing, a two piece striped suit and a turtle neck top.
Loving the look on both but I have to say I probably would not wear the two piece striped suit as I am not that confident enough to wear it. Not sure where the light blue and red stripe two piece suit is from as I was searching through some images and uploaded it to show. The black and white stripe blazer below is from River Island pricing at £59.99
Here I have put a flat lay style together with a Striped wrap top blouse and jeans and I love this blouse because I like the floral applique trim detailing on the blouse as it wraps round you cinching at the waist line with a wrap over tie belt.
This blouse was in the sale at New Look @ £9.00
Lastly here I am wearing the striped Red and white shirt dress from H&M @ £29.99 I have paired my outfit with nude wedged sandals. I hope my styling with stripes has given you some ways of how to dress with stripes although, it is not hard and it is easy to base stripes with other clothing adding plain textures with them.
