Your Fall 18 Stripes Style Guide

Big Stripe styles are giving my wardrobe life. My style is ever changing but I do like to keep it simple with a pop of *something*. That something right now is STRIPES. My closet has become flooded with them and the new fall 18 big, bold, and soft stripes have a lot to do with it. Weaving #flystyle into my everyday look is something I should put on my resume. Ways to wear? I shall show you the way.

Side note: the thing I love most about stripes is their history. Centuries back, "Stripes had a different interpretation, and it wasn’t a good one. For Medieval Europeans, stripes stood for difference and disorder, and striped clothing was worn by hangmen, non-Christians, clowns, rebels...” Essentially, people wore stripes to mark their status as an outcast. I’m into it. Anyway back to styling...


MIX STRIPES & PRINTS

Seems weird, right? Throw them together — you may be surprised. Below are two of my favorite combos:

Strappy Bra, Big Stripe Tank, Girl Code Spandos

ACCENTUATE WAIST & ADD SOMETHING INTERESTING

I love the high-waisted look and I love anything tied around (you see a lot of it in O styling). I personally like for my bottoms to sit right above my hips and so I tie long sleeves around there as well to help add some shape + a pop of something fun. And again - stripes + patterns, YES! If you love black on black (I feel you), spice it up with textures.

LAYER IT UP

I always get funny looks on set when I do the double knot. I love it, you guys! Such a fun way to layer and add some dimension to any outfit. Give it a try!

TUCK IT IN 

This is my definition of the perfect fall outfit. Mock neck + high waisted crop pants + booties. I will most likely be in a variation of these three styles all fall long. It's my feel good fit!
