Looks for Less: Step it up with Springtime Stripes

Whether you like bold, vertical stripes or opt for classic, menswear inspired pinstripes, stripes are definitely a wardrobe staple for springtime. When the right pieces are styled correctly, your silhouette will appear elongated and you can even mix and match your stripes with coordinating colors and prints for a fresh look. Step it up with springtime stripes.

Springtime Striped Pants

These towering Topshop trousers featuring a tapered leg will take your look to new heights. The vertical stripes will make you appear taller and the gathered, high waist and matching belt are a chic touch. These flattering pants would look adorable dressed up with a button down, heels and lipstick for the office or a dinner date or casually on the weekends with a simple top, sandals and a floppy hat.

Stripes on Dresses

If you’re after something more breezy, this floral dress from ASOS features stripes on the sides for a sporty, contrasting look. The refreshing blue hue and bright side stripes keep the dress from looking too sweet, balancing out the floral print, high neck and button-keyhole back detail.

Stripes on Shoes

Looking for a fun pair of shoes for spring? Look no further than these effortless d’Orsay style flats from Seychelles featuring a sophisticated, neutral stripe print and a delicately frayed bow. If you prefer, they also come in additional denim, black and yellow hues.

Springtime Stripes on Jewelry

BaubleBar is a wonderful place to pick up affordable, trendy pieces of jewelry. These playful, unique hoop earrings featuring beads and tassels remind me of spending sunny days at the beach with family, enjoying fruity drinks with chips and guacamole. They should be a must have accessory for vacation and are the perfect way to brighten an outfit.

Striped Bags

If your ensemble needs a pop of graphic color for spring, nothing will do the trick better than this chunky yet sleek striped backpack from ASOS. It’ll also keep your hands free to multitask, or even enjoy an ice cream on a warm day. Happy Spring!
