Wearing Stripes


Subscribe.Obsess. Over $300 of Style for Only $100!



Coco Chanel started the trend when she wore a fisherman's striped sweater with a pair of men's trousers. And our love of stripes has continued ever since. There are two rules to consider when choosing to wear stripes...

RULE #1 ~ Choose thin narrow stripes. They look amazing with anything and look great on everyone.

RULE #2 ~ Think about pairing stripes with neutrals, plaid and florals but keep your style relaxed and simple.

Here are a few of my favourite striped styles.

Breton Stripes
I love a nautical long-sleeved striped top that has a boat neck and a loose fit. Alexa Chung, Elle Macpherson, Claudia Schiffer and Sienna Miller are big fans of this style.

Mini Skirt Stripes
Nothing beats a striped mini skirt in soft jersey paired with a cool tee. Nicole Richie, Rihanna, Heidi Klum and Kirsten Cavallari all love this relaxed, casual look.

Mix-Matched Stripes
A striped top can look amazing with a leopard print skirt and a textured jacket. Whitney Port loves pairing stripes with plaid. She says, "Add a denim/leather jacket, black leggings, heels and I'm good to go."

Love, Elle xo
