How to Wear Stripes-on-Stripes This Spring

Ever wondered how to wear stripes this season? Read on for some quick easy-to-follow tips on now to nail this trend flawlessly.

Stripes are not a new trend. They keep recurring almost every year and you can see them bold in 2013 and then again in 2016, and this year, we have the stripes- on-stripes trend. I particularly like Ports 1961’s approach to stripes. In fact, you can see some of the most popular trends in that 34 piece collection, including a unique take on florals. So, how to wear stripes this season?

STYLE TIPS:

  1. Pair stripes on stripes
  2. You can try different size stripes on the top and pants. For example: try vertical stripes on the top and horizontal ones on the bottoms. Or …  try them in patches or different colors, like Ports 1961 did in its first look (see hyperlinked collection HERE)
  3. Try analogous colors (same color family), like pink and red. This particular color combination is very popular now. See a perfect example HERE
  4. Or, they them in contrasting colors, such as red and blue. You can play a bit with the color palette and go for a darker red and a light blue, for extra drama. Another perfect example illustrated
