ONE Bold Striped Piece Only, Please!
Hamburglar is a DON'T:
DO Outfit #1:
Pair a colorful horizontal-striped tank top with a long, lean cardigan in a complimentary shade. The cardigan will narrow the width of the stripes and have a thinning effect. Just make sure your striped shirt doesn't peek out underneath the cardi or it may appear that you have wide hips. You can dress this look up or down, pairing it with either dress pants, jeans, or other casual pants.
DO Outfit #2:
Conversely, you could choose to use stripes on the bottom, in which case you will want to either keep it simple up top with a plain blouse in a fun color or interesting style, or use a different pattern altogether. Please avoid horizontal stripes on the bottom unless you want to run into pajama pant/19th century prison uniform territory.
DO Outfit #3:
Try a subtle stripe, like these tuxedo pants, with a sleek silk button-down:
DO Outfit #4:
Wear a cute striped skirt with a plain, casual or dressy top tucked in:
DO Outfit #5:
Try a modified gondolier look with a cute, striped tank top tucked into a solid, casual skirt:
