Stripes are always in season. Those (usually) horizontal lines running across your shirt or skirt or dress are flattering and fresh. Stripes are a surefire way to keep your outfit trendy without putting in much work at all. Are you looking for ways to spice up an outfit? Here’s 20 of the hottest ways to wear stripes.
1. Paired with polka dots
Don’t be afraid to pair stripes with polka dots– the resulting look is fresh, hip and fun.
2. Patterns and stripes
Colored stripes paired with a bold print is a luxe look. The tame shoes and bohemian earrings and simple hair all pull this look together. It’s absolutely perfect.
3. Stripes on stripes
Pairing two different striped items– a top and bottom looks great when the stripes are different thickness. This look also works because the stripes are similar in color.
4. Mint and thick stripes
This dress is pretty adorable on its own, but with the added details– a cute fedora, a mint statement necklace, mint flats and a mint sidebag, this look is not only complete, it’s amazing!
5. Black and white and red all over
These thick black-and-white stripes work great with bright red skinnies and a chunky gold necklace. The whole ensemble makes this an outfit to remember.
6. Boyfriend jeans and stripes
We love this casual look– ripped boyfriend jeans, paired with a loose striped top, black bag and black sunnies– it’s all perfection.

Most times you’ll see a striped tee underneath a blazer, but in this case, the blazer’s on top and paired perfectly with black and pink accents.
