Trend spotting: Stripe It Up

Step aside frolicking florals, solid stripes are all the rage

Have you noticed how a striped shirt or a bag instantly uplifts your outfit? We sure have and are firm believers of the power of stripes. Adding stripes to your daily wear is a sure fire way to give you a Sonam-Kapoor-esque status at your workplace or college. For those of you who are still getting the hang of the trend, start off with banker and city stripes.

Think bold and bright, just like these celebrities!

Team them with solid colors

They can be bright, pastel, or plain white, but it is necessary to balance the stripes with a solid colored top or lowers. We love how Athiya Shetty teamed her striped pants with a white shirt with ruffles.

You can dress it up by adding chunky jewelry or keep it simple with a watch and gold chain.

Forget what we said above

Nothing yells fun more than defying the set rules. Sonam Kapoor wears stripes on stripes during her vacation in New York, and we love the look. If you are not comfortable with bold stripes, you can opt for softer ones like this diva.

Sanam Saeed was spotted in a pretty cool striped top, which you can pair with striped pants or skirt.

Who says Stripes need to be monochrome?

Think pink, yellow and electric blue and go all out in a striped linen dress like Mawra Hocane. Doesn’t she look perfect for a night out or even a casual GT under the glorious sun?

Embrace the horizontal stripes

We often hear that vertical stripes make you appear tall and slim while horizontal ones create not-so-flattering illusion. So why would anyone prefer to go the horizontal way?

Because style goddess Deepika Padukone says so. Let’s get creative guys!

You can keep it subtle too

If you are unsure about going all out with this trend just yet, go for pastel shades like Maya Ali. She paired her striped cotton shirt with denims to create a casual yet chic summer look.

Stick with the basics…

Because they never go out of style!

A monochrome dress with vertical stripes is what Ayesha Omar spotted in. Feel free to add in a neon cross body bag and white sneakers, if sporty chic is your thing.
