5 Ways to Wear Stripes this Fall

Stripes are still a BIG trend going on right now. It’s crazy, right? They’ve been trending for the last 3 seasons! I have to admit, I love seeing a trend transcend from season to season to season. It makes it easy for everyone to “work it” because you can just keep refreshing and reusing from last season! :)

As the Fall season is setting in… or about to, I wanted to share some different ways that you can wear stripes this season!

I must admit, I wasn’t sure I’d like stripes a few seasons ago. I never thought I could pull off a tee or a tank or a sweater. I always felt like stripes just weren’t my fashion best friend. Even though I’m still not a 100% recovered stripe-shirt lover, I DO love them!! I’ve been seeing them everywhere and on every thing!

Just remember, go with what makes you most fashion comfortable. You don’t want to overdo stripes, you really want to work them into your wardrobe easily and one-step at a time!

Are you ready to see some ways to pull off stripes and have some fun with them this Fall?


Oh, yes! Flats with stripes. You don’t have to make them your fashion showpiece, just allow them to be worked into your outfit gradually. I love the soft stripes on these flats! So classic and so sophisticated!

2) Silk Blouse

Silk is IN this season! I am obsessing over silk blouses, I literally cannot get enough of them! I love this option right here. You have the silk that’s totally in right now, and you have the stripes that are totally trending right now, too. It’s a perfect match! Not to mention, nice and BOLD!

3) Jeans

You have to be FASHION DARING! I know a lot of people that are and I know a lot of people that aren’t! It really depends on your personal fashion taste! I think these jeans are cool as can be, but I’m not sure I’m daring enough. But… they are out there right now!

4) Cardigan

I always tell moms that they need a fabulous cardi in their closets! It’s just an essential. I love adding in a striped one this season. It’s easy to wear with jeans, trousers, skirts and dresses. I love the nautical feel of this cardi, too! Just an easy add-on for all!

5) Handbag

I love a handbag! If you’re looking for an easier way to add stripes in, it’s always safe to go with a handbag. It’s just the perfect way to get that touch of trend without wearing it all day long. I know lots of moms feel like they just want touches here and there. If this sounds like you, just add it on through your bag!
