What to Wear: Stripes for Spring

By Tenisha Mercer

A few cute beach looks in stripes
Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you can't help but notice how stripes have made such a BIG comeback. Not since the early-to-mid 1990s  have we seen stripes so prominent; they are everywhere -- in fitted blazers, slouchy tops, dresses, you name it, and they have been for a few seasons now.

Now, stripes are very classic and don't go out of style, but you can't deny that stripes are especially hot right now.

So, here are a few ways to transition the look from winter to spring:

Add stripes in lighter colors. For spring, stripes are in all types of things, especially pastels. Pair a striped slouchy top with a pair of pastel skinnies. Or, wear a classic striped dress with an up-down hemline in the front.

Think about striped accessories. What about  pairing a striped eternity scarf with your to-work outfit. This is a way to incorporate a hot "trend" into your normal fashions.

Go bold. This time around, bold stripes are particularly hot. Bold black and white stripes make an excellent backdrop with hot colors such as mint or seafoam green for spring.

Are you wearing stripes for spring?
