When wearing stripes in general, it's all about what you pair it with. Keep the rest of your outfit simple with solid colors, pastel hues, or interesting textures like denim, leather, or lace.

A fitted striped trouser or skirt is generally best paired with a fitted cropped top, tunic or layered with a jacket.
A looser billowy striped bottom can be worn with a loose or fitted top. Always remember to keep the outfit classy, simple, and sleek. Don't be afraid to tuck in your tops and accentuate your waistline.

A striped shirt is essential. This versatile garment can easily create a sophisticated, nautical or paris-chic look in no time. Look for wide, scoop or boat necklines. Striped oxford shirts are huge this year too. Pair with slim jeans, bermuda shorts, or loose trousers.
