TREND ALERT! – Go Retro with Stripes

Hello Hello!

Wow, it’s been SO long since our last post, but we are extremely excited to be back. 2018 is here and we are BACK. We have so much awesome stuff in store for you guys and can’t wait to get back into the swing of things. Thanks for being so patient with us! Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get right into it! Today we threw together some outfits inspired by the upcoming spring fashion trends. And it’s all about STRIPES!

Coming out of winter and transitioning into spring, we took notice that stipes are on the rise. Rightfully so, what better way to kick off the new year than with some BOLD patterns. Colorful stripes is proving to be a must have staple this season!

Here are two outfits to inspire your love for stripes as we move into spring!


Urban Outfitters Stripes

What first inspired me in this outfit was most definitely these amazing shorts. They had such a wonderful retro feel that naturally comes with stripes, but also was complimented by the colors. I paired the shorts with this red bell sleeve top. Not only did the color match perfectly with the red in the shorts, but the bell sleeves pulled at my retro heart strings.

What I love most about this outfit is how versatile these pieces are. Both can be dressed up or dressed down as well as worn with a ton of other pieces I have in my closet. I went for a more casual look by pairing them with flats, but throw on a cute pair of strappy heels and this outfit would be ready for a night out.

With this outfit, I paired together this super cool vertical striped mustard yellow button up with pair of white washed denim jeans. Lovin’ the vintage vibes from this shirt…and it’s so easy to style a retro button up and definitely one of my go to looks when I want to look casual yet sleek.

I had a little fun putting this look together…the vertical lines that run up the side of the jeans transition into the stripes of the shirt making for a fun stylized combo. Also, can’t go wrong by tossing on your favorite pair of chucks and sunglasses and you have yourself a fresh new look!
