I think I may have a slight obsession with stripes. Vertical ones to be exact. These wide leg striped pants from Forever21 were mine as soon as I saw them. Literally, I saw them, didn’t even think to try them on, and went straight to the register. That real. I knew with a fitted top this look would work for my sister’s birthday dinner that occurred a few weeks back. But I know I can definitely dress this up in so many other ways (flowy black crop top perhaps?). Below I’ve listed 5 striped items you may want to add to your Summer 2017 closet!The Off the Shoulder Top isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Adding stripes into the mix gives the obvious added flare than just a plain white version. I wore one in this post.
The Jumpsuit was initially something I used to shy away from. I realized that the best fit for me when it came to this item was one that cinched at the center of my waist, instead of on my hips or right under my chest.
The Skinny Neck Scarf have become my go to neck accessory (besides chokers). They can be tied in a number of ways and complement off the shoulder or skinny strap tops nicely.
The Midi dress is one of those styles that can be worn year round. For summer, light airy pieces (cotton, linen, silk) should be your choices. My rule with a Maxi Dress: Either go midi A maxi that drags on the floor just a bit makes it perfect. Just don’t go overboard.
The Culottes will always be my ultimate favorite style of pants. So of course I had to include it in this round up.
