UR TRENDS: Awesome Stripes For Under $50
Written by Melanie Sutrathada
Stripes are back as the popular and versatile pattern for spring and summer. Bold and chic, they’ve been reinterpreted and adapted season after season. They’ll essentially always be in style. They’re timeless! Think of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe – both rocked stripes and looked amazing in them. If it’s your first time trying out this trend, you may want to keep it simple with one striped piece and one solid. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, you might go for a striped blazer with distressed boyfriend jeans and a strappy heel. My personal favorites are mixing stripes and polka dots or florals. The possibilities are endless, especially if you treat stripes as a neutral in your wardrobe.
How will you be styling your stripes this season?
