Style Challenge: Stripes

Introducing our new Challenge posts! See how we style some of our favorite trends, starting with stripes.

Stripes are one of my favorite prints because the are so easy to mix with! I especially love this thrifted Ralph Lauren striped top because it has a bit of sparkle to it, yet the neutral colors are easy to match with! In winter, my favorite way to add a war

Striped Skirt

I love my striped shirts (and pretending I'm a French girl in them), but I'm a stripe fiend can't contain the stripes to the upper part of the body. And I Adore this skirt. It can be harder to remix due to its boldness, so I kept the rest of the outfit simple here. To see more with this outfit I wrote about it here. 

Here's a never before seen outfit I didn't get around to posting on the blog. I can't even express how much I love wearing stripes--especially if they're black and white and Tim Burton-esque. I usually pick a neutral striped clothing item, like a dress or skirt, and add some color to it with bright shoes or accessories.

This outfit is actually for an upcoming blog post so you get a sneak peek!  Stripes are definitely a staple in my closet.  I love to break up the striped look by adding bright pops of color.

I'm a huge fan of pattern mixing, so when I wear stripes (something I have far too little of in my closet), I like to pair them with polka dots! They of course look great with solids, too, as the other girls have shown. I love wearing them with blues, for the nautical vibes.

This little challenge made me realize that I'm a huge fan of stripes, but apparently in theory not practice, since my last posting in 'em was back in the summer (seen here)! Well, good thing I've realized, you can surely expect me to be remixing this top soon with some layers + fun tights for winter so stay tuned on my blog : ).
Excuse the indoor photo as I had to hurry and snap a few pics last night. Apparently I don't wear stripes enough! I do love them mixed with a little color and a few cute accessories. Just enough to add interest but not be too busy. Visit me here for more photos and outfit details.

It's really no secret that I love stripes. In fact, when this style challenge was suggested, my name was brought up immediately. Stripes is definitely one of my favorite patterns (after polka dots, of course) so I love getting to see how all of my lovely Flock Together girls wear the trend. This was my most recent post with the pattern and it's one of my favorites. I usually play it safe with prints, but I've liked the idea of mixing them lately and stripes are the perfect way to do so! See my original post here.
What are some of your favorite ways to wear stripes? We'd love to hear! And see. Leave us a link to a post of you rockin' the stripes if you have a blog.

  3. You girls are all so pretty and stylish!


  4. Wow, there's loads of you in Flock Together now! It's interesting that you all went for black and white stripes pretty much! I really love Erica's dress with the pink shoes and the lipstick and then Ashley has pink withblack and white too. Obviously a good combination.

  5. I think this is one of my favorite FT posts yet! I love stripes and seeing how everyone styled them! I think its funny that literally all of us have some sort of black or navy stripes, yet all of them are styled differently. Can't wait for more fun challenges in the future!
