It’s almost Spring; which means pretty soon you’re going to be welcomed with a whole load of skirts and tops! Since floral skirts are hottest trends for Spring and Summer, this year, break the monotony with a cool striped skirt. Don’t worry about the blocks of color being loud, with the right accessories, you too can rock a striped skirt like an expert!
The first rule of wearing a striped skirt is not to combine it with a matching striped top. This look may be tempting, as it was quite a hit last season, but remember that this look will work only if you opt for a well-textured tight-fitting pencil skirt and a midriff-baring crop top! But, since it’s spring, you’d want to stay away from anything body-hugging!
While there are loads of ways to style a striped skirt, the simple and trusted way to rock it is with a solid dark red top. Pick one with a loose-fitting silhouette and go with some embellishments or embroidery to step your style ante! You could also style a striped skirt with a graphic printed tee shirt in neutral colors and let your bold stripes do the talking.
Don’t feel shy about experimenting with colors, textures and styles when opting for a striped skirt; but if you want to stay safe, opt for basic colors aka black and white.
