Something about a pattern added to an outfit instantly amplifies the chic factor. At the moment, stripes are our current obsession, and they are everywhere! Pairing a stark solid with a fab stripe, or mixing and matching a stripe with another pattern with a similar color story truly makes a statement. Crisp and clean, adding a stripe is a fresh look for the summer that is so very now. It also is very striking and professional for your next meeting. This week, we are here to show you our favorite ways to wear stripes so you can also make the perfect statement at your next entrance.

We are obsessing over this St. John Two Piece. It is fabulous, and it’s easy to dress up or down depending on what you want to wear it to. The mix of the same stripe in different directions works to break up the look and make a head-turning impact. The vertical stripes of the pants work to elongate the body. This is a simple tip that works wonders. For pants, dresses, and skirts stick to a vertical stripe so you lengthen. Also, a blue or grey stripe paired with white or cream is always a stylish color combo. They are the perfect colors for the summer months and the perfect outfit!
KF Tip ~ Use the top or the bottom of the two-piece as separates to change things up and create a whole new outfit.
