Tips for Wearing Stripes

Stripes have a bad reputation in the fashion world, often being accused of adding unnecessary bulk. But this is not all true. Here’s a few tips for wearing them:

  • Start off wearing smaller pin stripes rather than bold ones but don’t let the myth of stripes making you look wider deter you. Stripes are a fun look and when worn in the right way, can look really trendy.
  • Horizontal stripes will not make you look wider as long as they fit you properly. Just don’t let the pattern overwhelm your shape. For example, if you have a small frame then wear a smaller stripe pattern. If you have a somewhat disproportionate shape, wear stripes on the area you want to add volume to and help make your body look more balanced.
  • Try pairing stripes with other prints, like florals or animal prints, like leopard. These different prints contrast nicely when worn in subtle ways with stripes of any size.
  • Try a striped top paired with a khaki skirt, shorts or pants. It looks great together!

There’s tons of looks you can try with stripes and at Indiverve we always say, the bolder the better! Pictured below are some striped scarves in bright Spring- inspired colours to add to your every day outfits. They look even more chic when paired with (of course) gold bangles!
