Do It Yourself Fashionable Stripes

Some of you may remember my post on How to Stand Out on the Field - one of the steps on this post was to focus on one trend. Monochrome or Stripes was one of the Racing Outfit Trends that was my pick for the season. Well Stripes are a great chic staple to have in your wardrobe; they can turn jeans and ballet flats into a classic fun outfit. Or you can use striped accessories to lift the staple little black dress and carry it into this year!

There has been a lot of talk lately about chic French dressing and stripes are an easy way to feel fresh and fashionable. Let's look at Stripes on the Street first though!

Do you already own some stripes to wear in 2014? And which type of dresser are you; more conservative or a risk taker? Which outfit below suits you best? The stripes with a little black dress? Or the bold striped outfit?

I'd love to hear from anyone who purchases any of the items I suggest! Feel free to tell me your story in the comments section under the post.

Stripes to Lift a Little Black Dress

A Striped Outfit for the BOLD

Another way you could wear stripes is to wear a whole striped outfit! Pick a similar stripe in the same colour for a top and skirt. I have used a pink shoulder bag and pink shoes in the outfit below to bring a bit of feminine colour. The soft pink means the eye has something to rest on and this will break the stripes up sufficiently.
