TREND: The BLACK Stripes

It’s very hard to say goodbye to the winter sometimes. The winter brings beautiful morning chills that allow you to bundle up in a scarf and wear the most essential color of the season: black. Wearing black almost became a natural part of your wardrobe that the transition to white almost seems tedious. Not to worry darling Fashionista! This spring, a great way to wear a little black is in the form of stripes. While they come in all shapes, colors and sizes, you have a wide variety to pick from when it comes to choosing the one that suits you.

As we have seen on the runways, the variety ranges from nautical stripes for a day by the sea, to bright spring colored stripes like yellow and orange, and even geometric funky stripes for a night out on the town. The all-over skinny stripe is perfect for that touch of black some will yearn for even after the winter is over. The style may seem a little on the 70s mod side, but part of that is the fun in finding ways to mix it up.

This week’s Fashionista was found wearing a russet and black striped dress by H&M paired with Simple Vera Vera Wang tights and a vintage flower belt. To add a little touch to the outfit, she is seen wearing a gold Seiko with pressed on leopard print nails. To finish off this chic look, she paired the dress with a pair of Dolce Vita oxfords and is found carrying her daily essentials in a Kenneth Cole handbag. The structured dress compliments the pointy edge in the oxfords, giving the overall look that loving memory of mod model, Twiggy.

Hint: To make this outfit your own, you can wear a Rachel Pally striped blanca dress paired with a Kimchi Blue art deco stretch belt from Urban Outfitters and a pair of oxfords by Steve Madden. For accessories, you can try a nice sun cocktail ring by House of Harlow or even a stacked bangle set by Belle Noel.
