I was reading a couple of articles on 2017 runway trends and one of the trends that caught me eye
was the stripes. They are wearing them bolder and even more vibrant, mixed matched in different sizes and in different colors too. While this is absolutely beautiful to look at, I am a lady of sound mind and my damn sound mind will not let me walk out of the house wearing a dress with rainbow colored stripes, I wouldn't even wear rainbow colored socks if I had to tuck them under my pants and wear boots over them.

 Its pretty obvious that runway trends are not for the everyday simple girl but the beauty of fashion is that you can incorporate those trends into your everyday look to look more up to date (fashion wise) and stylish and here are a few tricks on how.

Color choice - While I am not comfortable wearing luminous green and orange stripes in one look (don't judge me if I do in the future, my style is dynamic...lol) somebody else might be. Go for colors  that sit well next to each other, colors that complement each other.. that kind of thing. Also ensure you are comfortable in your color selection,you don't want to be walking down the streets and every time someone stares you think, damn they are judging my vibrant stripes. Try working with neutral shades as they are not as over bearing.

One or two pieces-  I don't know about you but I don't think wearing a striped top over striped pants, topped off with a striped blazer and striped shoes is a good idea. If you have to wear more than one striped piece at once wear two but make sure they are different, They could be different sizes or even colors. Did you notice my faux fur coat is striped too?

Keep the rest of your look simple - You want the stripes to pop, so you should keep the rest of your look rather simple. When I say simple I don't mean plain and boring rather I mean go for a more elegant feel. ie. Pair your stripped piece with an elegant coat. Also go for accessories that complement your look.

Vertical or horizontal- I'm sure we all know, vertical stripes are more slimming, while horizontal lines make you look wider.. thought I read a scientific article that claimed the opposite. When shopping for your piece try out different stripes and pick out one that makes you feel absolutely stunning.

Pin your interests - I really enjoy using Pinterest, you get lots of amazing style ideas, for all sorts of styles. Try Pinterest and pin some of the striped outfits that inspire you. use these ideas to come up with your own look. Don't blindly copy someone's  look, it might not look as good on you.
