Stripes are a hugh trend for the fall and give such a comfortable laid back look. Although stripes never go out of style they are really having a moment right now and not just for my preppy girls. I think Fall is a great time to explore this trend. The mixture of bold colors on soft sweater like items has been a go to of mines. Last Sunday I paired a sweater stripe top with high waisted jeans and threw on my fluffy jacket. It was a perfect combo for a casual Sunday afternoon.

For today’s rainy forecast I opted to wear a long striped sweater dress. I find that choosing one hue within the stripe pattern and accentuating it throughout your look is key. Some people worry stripes aren’t flattering when in actuality horizontal stripes make you appear thinner ! However if you are still concerned I suggest wearing a belt to cinch in at the waist or something more form fitting to avoid looking a bit wider especially around the waist!

Never underestimate the power of a striped shirt! Xo
