ACCESSORIES REPORT: Earning Your Stripes

The stripes trend has been a favorite among Fashionista/os this summer. It all started with Miley Cyrus’ iconic striped jumpsuits all over Instagram, but now stripes have completely taken over. From pants and crop tops to handbags and even sunglasses, stripes are abundant and waiting to spruce up your look in a matter of seconds!

The main focus of this Fashionista’s amazing outfit is her oversized black and white striped handbag. The stripes are wide and create and bold, yet classy addition to her neutral ensemble. The handbag is even accessorized with a large black and white polka-dotted bow. Mixing prints is a fun way to venture outside the box this summer, and staying within the same color scheme doesn’t cause the look to become too busy. This handbag is perfect for everyday use as well as a stylish backpack alternative to keep your books and school supplies with you on campus.

This Fashionista continues to push the limits and experiment with different colors and patterns in the rest of her outfit as well. Her wedges add an amazing pop of color to her look and offer a contrasting pattern to the stripes on her handbag. She further accessorized with a chunky coral necklace and a gold watch. The necklace not only draws attention on its own, but also to the beautiful neckline of her black crop top. Coral is a great summer color that is often seen as nautical. Her gold watch is timeless and chic, taking her look to the next level.
