Stripes can be seen everywhere this summer. From tops, bottoms to accessories, they come in all sorts of different forms. If you don't find stripes your fashion friend then you gotta throw away your typical impression of them being dull and formal. Stripes are fun and playful this year! Today I bring you an OOTD of how I play with stripes.
My look here is a mixture between grunge, glamorous and casual. With stripes being very catchy already and the neon colors of them being quite psychedelic, I dialed back the look by keeping other things simple. Instead of using more accessories or complex garments, I used different textures to bring out the vibes I want to express. For example, the loose cutting of the top makes it very laid back, by pairing it with leather shorts and suede ankle boots, they add a hint of rock to the whole outfit. Personally i don't give a dang about "boots are for winter". My fashion philosophy is as long as it looks good, wear whatever you like and whenever. Fashion is about how you feel about yourself and how you like to wear things. It's never about what other people say. You are fashion, not the trends. Of course I am not saying you shouldn't follow trends. Instead I am saying choose what suits you and collaborate it with your personal style. That is fashion.
For details, I chose a sequin bag with colors that are similar to the top. This makes the glamorous sequin clutch blend in with the whole outfit, giving it a mixture of high fashion and street style. With the addition of chained bangle on the hand, the suede boots and leather shorts also become even more coherent.
