A huge trend last spring adn summer was stripes. Now with spring merchandise making its way into stores, we’re seeing that the popularity of stripes has not diminished. Personally I love stripes; I think they are a fresh clean look that goes perfect for daytime or nighttime wear. When I spotted this Fashionista I immediately was impressed by how she incorporated stripes in her ensemble.

This Fashionista was wearing a blue and white striped shirt with a green vest, skinny jeans, riding boots, and a hat. I thought her outfit was so effortlessly stylish. Not only was she trendsetting with her striped shirt, she managed to include another popular trend: army green. Army green has been a huge color this fall season. From utilitarian jackets to t-shirts this color has been worn every which way. I love how this Fashionista included it with the blue and white stripes. Not only was the army green color trendy, the style of her vest was fabulous too. Layering the vest over her long sleeve shirt gave the outfit more of an edge than if she wore the shirt on its own. She topped off her ensemble with a gray hat. I thought this was the perfect final touch. Not only does it look great with the rest of her outfit, it is totally appropriate for February weather. This season stripes are a must! Experiment with bold colors and different size stripes. Whether thick or thin they are all great!

Hint: For stripes check out Forever21. They have a huge variety; this one is my particular favorite. Urbanoutfitters also has a cute hat similar to this Fashionista's.
