The Super Easy Way to Wear Stripes

Guess who is wearing another black outfit? That’s right I’m back with another black look for this week’s style post. Adding a little pizzaz to it with black and white stripes. I went with a turtleneck in this look as we are still experiencing cold weather. We just had another snowstorm this week, but the beauty of Boston Weather is that the weather changes every second. Yesterday snow storm today sunny and cool…I love it.

What I love about this look is its simplicity but still giving a little fabulousity. Striped tops are always great with solid colors for example black and white stripes paired with solid black or white. I like the look of a black and white striped top with a black skirt or even a red skirt if you want to brighten things up. Here are more fun ways to wear a striped top;

 3 fun ways to wear a black and white stripes top:
  1. With a vest: I like to do this quite often because the vest adds another stylish layer to a outfit.
  2. Over a button up shirt: This preppy way to pair the striped top with with button up underneath is a great way to pull off a smart casual look.
  3. With a leather jacket: This is a classic combo that always looks great on anyone.

  1. Like you, I love to wear a combination of black and white, tt looks so stylish. That stripey top is lovely and would look great with a leather jacket as you suggest!

  2. I love stripes and they’re so versatile. I think it’s nice to wear it with a blazer whenever you feel like dressing up. A leather jacket is awesome as well. Love all your tips and how you styled your outfit!

  3. Black and white stripes are my favorite! I love to pair a black cardigan with a black and white striped dress, and then add grey or brown boots for fun. Your photos are gorgeous!

  4. I like your outfit, it’s very smart! I like the stripes but not that type of a turtleneck jumper, as I have a sensitive neck and can’t wear anything on it. I actually have a similar blouse, but without the turtle neck. 🙂
