The Best Candy Stripes to Rock into Spring

I like my polka dots in black and white only, but my stripes? I love ’em candy colored, rainbow hued, just bright! When I first saw today’s featured purple striped shirt, it made me smile. Since I love getting that that joyful vibe from clothing, I purchased it. Just like that, my collection of candy stripes grew.

What I’m Wearing:

Purple striped shirt | White blazer | White jeans | Shoes (fun sandal option)

Warby Parker Hunt sunglasses c/o | Mac “Ambrosial” lipstick

For my first time wearing this purple striped shirt, I wanted it to pop. So, I wore it with all white. Remember my Denizen white ankle jeans (seen before here)? They’re a perfect partner for for these purple stripes.

This year, I’m trying to dress up my style more. So, I added my white blazer to give the casual combination a bit more polish. I think it did the trick.

Finding the Perfect Prints for You Comes down to This

Spring and summer 2018 are shaping up to be a print lover’s heaven! Stripes, black and white polka dots, pop culture prints, florals, logos, bold abstracts, they’re all dominating style trends this year. But, where do you begin when choosing the perfect prints for yourself?

How to choose the perfect prints

What I’m wearing:

Old DVF dress (love this) | Kate Spade clutch (old) | 14K gold chevron earrings |

Red lip | Nails: OPI Lavendurable

I could tell you that you should consider your shape, size, and height when choosing prints. And, there’s some sound advice there. Ultimately, however, you should choose prints that inspire, flatter, and suit your style sensibilities. Any trendy print that fails to do just that should be a pass.

This might come as a surprise to you, but I’m short. Ha. Seriously, I’m only 5’4.” Fashion convention would warn me stay away from bold, all-over prints because they overwhelm my smaller frame. What do I do? I spot a DVF dress in the boldest, all-over, red twirl print, and I buy it. Why? Because the print inspires me, flatters me, and suits my style sensibilities.
