Stripes have been a huge trend recently. For the majority of my life I’ve steered clear of stripes on my clothing. If I tried on vertical stripes, I imagined someone saying “Beetlejuice” three times and me appearing, just kidding, but seriously… I also felt that horizontal stripes made most people appear wider and shorter, so I wrote off the pattern as one that only tall, thin magazine models could wear. After years of thinking this way I started seeing stripes pop up in magazines, blogs, Pinterest, everywhere! Before you know it, I had pinned at least 10 outfits on Pinterest that had a striped item. So I decided to give the style a try one last time and oddly enough, I now like them! I teamed up with my friend Ashley from Raspberry Glow to show you some ways to wear stripes this year.
Ashley was my perfect counterpart for this blog because not only is she beautiful with rockin’ style, but she also is physically the opposite of me. She’s tall, blonde hair and blue eyed; while I’m short, dark and curvy. This way all of you readers can see how striped styles look with different physical features.
