Stripes are one of my go-to prints for almost any look, but don’t stop with a stripe sweater (obsessed with this one!) or tee you can build a stripe look with multiple stripe pieces. When you are mixing stripes you want to have some variation but also some common ground.
- Color: Typically you want to keep only one color constant between patterns.
- Scale: One way to introduce variation is playing with the scale of the print. Balance out a thicker striped pattern in one piece with finer stripes in another.
- Texture: Another way to keep stripes from blending together is to incorporate different textures. A rafia stripe against a textured sweater keeps both pieces distinct but unified by the common print.
Below are a few more of my cute stripe items I’m loving, just ordered these stripe open toed espadrilles.
