Seeing Stripes

I'm seeing stripes, and I'm not talking about the ones on jailbird attire. Bold black and white striped apparel not only made its way onto the spring runways, but found a place on the fashionable jet set that street style photographer love. 


Black and white striped pants, blazers and blouses are an easy way to add a graphic element to an otherwise simple sleek look. For a high fashion look take a cue from these ladies and keep the entire outfit black and white with a single pop of color in a clutch or a pump. 

 Spring 2013 Runway Shows (left to right): Balmain, Issey Miyake, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs

Collections from Marc Jacobs to Issey Miyake decked the runways with black and white stripes for their spring 2013 shows. Equal parts preppy and punk, there is no reason to wait until March to sport this look, plenty of options are already in stores so that you can be an be ahead of the crowd.

  3. Loving the vertical stripes trend! I've always been a fan of Beetlejuice and now it's "appropriate" to wear an outfit inspired by the weirdo. Yes! Have a great week girly! xx, Allie

  6. I am 100% a fan of b&w stripes but doubt I will wear them on my pants....that would be scary. The vertical ones do look flattering though! xoxo
