Keep it simple
The beauty of stripes is that they can make a statement all on their own, so it’s OK to keep the rest of your outfit rather plain. “I love the look of a simple linen button-down with a pair of striped palazzo pants or culottes,” says Mumma. “Easy and breezy!”
Mix and match patterns
If you’re a little more daring with your fashion choices, try to mix and match patterns. “I’m into the juxtaposition of a striped tee with a classic plaid chino. Even a striped handkerchief around your neck with a chic polka dot dress can turn heads,” shares Mumma.
Stick with versatile pieces
When it comes to picking the perfect striped piece, stick with versatile styles. Mumma recommends a fun accessory like the White House Black Market Striped Tote Bag because it can be paired with anything in your wardrobe.
Try any and every form of stripes
From vertical stripes to thin stripes or even rainbow stripes, there are so many different forms of stripes you can play around with. “I love the classic feel of horizontal stripes. Whether it’s a three-quarter length tee to give a French girl vibe or a beachy kimono like the Isaac Mizrahi Blue & White Kimono, you can’t go wrong,” says Mumma.
Remember, everyone has a unique body type
Whether you’re curvy or petite, it’s all about understanding how to dress for your body type. “For example, if you have an hourglass shape, and you’re wearing a horizontal striped top, pair it with a pencil skirt or high-waisted denim. Looks like this will elongate your shape and highlight your waist,” explains Mumma.
