details are right in line
Combining a classical or nautical black and white stripe pattern with one of the hottest trends now, cold-shoulder tops and feminine bows, adds a unique twist to the overall look.
The perfect first-date, happy hour, party style gets even more elevated with global-inspired jewelry, either shiny and sleek or statement earrings in gold or silver. Finishing it all off with a high wedge strappy sandal the stripe design goes head to toe.
every which way
Whether your stripes are skinny or thick, horizontal or vertical, stripes are always in! Go with a vintage vibe, pairing a stripe tee with a solid color long knit dress for some casual cool. Or, you can step it up and go out on the town in a halter designed top with a daring cut-out neckline.
The perfect shoe to compliment? Global-chic gladiator sandals in coordinating tones. And, be sure to balance out all the black with a touch of white – like a cute white handbag! But remember, it’s all about how YOU want the total look to come together.
When you have an eye-catching pattern like black and white stripes, you should keep your accessories low-key. Let the stripes take center stage. We suggest a flirty, strappy, black sandal that lets your natural skin tone come through, and jewelry with subtle, yet graphic shapes (think spheres, tassels, multi-circular designs). Choose silver to complement the black and white tones for a subtler feel; choose golden jewelry to add to the sharp contrast, and dressier style. For a pop of color, or to shake things up even more, try a gold or red skinny belt, or a brightly colored clutch bag!
