I like to think of fashion as a game. It’s like a puzzle that you get to play around with every single day. But unlike a puzzle, there is no right or wrong. It’s all about preference and finding out what suits and complements you. There is no limit to fashion, no limit to the pieces you can pair together. It’s a beautiful invention, to say the least.
Take stripes for example. A simple fashion statement that can be played around to suit both casual and formal environments. You have got to love the versatility of striped outfits.
Here are a few casual ideas of how to wear and pair your striped outfits.
This one is for sunny days. It’s a simple look to be paired with plain colours. While you are at liberty to pair the shorts with anything, it looks better with basic prints. You should stray away from mixing it with flower prints or even polka dots. Plain colours draw attention to the patterns making the outfit stand out. In other words, the simpler, the better.
For the lukewarm and the cold days, the striped sweater is a perfect choice. You can pair this outfit with jeans and boots or even sneakers. It’s a very laid back look that still looks classy and stands out. The stripes bring out style to your outfit without drawing too much attention to you.
Striped crop top
The return of the crop top a few years ago was one of the best things to happen in the fashion world. Crop tops are super casual, comfortable, and cute. They highlight the lower part of your body, especially if paired with tights or skinny jeans. This is another laid back look you can choose to try out.
Again, if you are a simple person, then you probably just want to match a busy print with plain colours. That’s where the navy jacket comes in. There are many variations of this jacket, and it is perfect for the cold weather. It will keep you both warm and stylish, which is something a lot of us struggle with sometimes. This jacket is versatile and can be used both for formal and casual settings.
Striped palazzo pants
You have got to love the fashion trend of printed pants. It’s hard to think of a time where they weren’t the trend. Striped pants are versatile because depending on how you pair them they can work for both the casual and the formal setting. For casual events, you can pair them with plain white tees or plain tank tops. Remember to keep it simple so that most attention is drawn towards the patterns.
For a ‘decent’ and classy look, the striped skirt is for you. It can be worn in many different places. This outfit makes a person look put together, and is versatile at the same time. You can wear them with plain tees or even collared ones. You can also use some jewellery to make it pop even more.
