Stripes on Stripes: My Personal Style Tips

Everyone is entitled to wear stripes on stripes, it’s just a matter of if you’re doing it well. To me, any kind of pattern with any kind of print will do. Just about. There are, of course, the exclusions, but I have yet to find any print/pattern mix that I didn’t love.

I will wear this top with just about any bottom, as long as it has a high waist. The reason? Because it is cropped. Surprise! I got this Burberry crop top second-hand and it is always my go-to when I have a new printed skirt. I wear it with my vintage looking paisley skirt, my denim overall dress or with high track pants.

As far as accessories go, I obsess over statement necklaces with crew-neck tops. I got this necklace at Goodwill for $3. It is made of numerous plates that come together to create this geometric transformer-esque neck piece. On a scale of 1 to best-Goodwill-purchase-of-my-life? Take a guess.

Take fashion risks, because isn’t that what style is all about? My personal style says that I have tons of things going on inside my head and I don’t want to pick just one to think about.

Have you ever tried mixing prints? If you haven’t, you must! Try to keep a similar color palette or theme. Stripes on stripes is usually pretty easy. Want more of a risk? Try polka dots or a floral print with stripes!
