How TOesday: Make stripes matter

1cristinafeather how to stripes
Stripes are such classics. It seems they are never out of fashion. And even though summer has passed, you can make them count in a completely modern and new way: by wearing them on a bottom piece, instead of a top one.

The only secret is to use stripes in a way that will flatter your silhouette. That means that you will only wear horizontal stripes if you are small or medium size – and choose thin and feminine stripes if you are a bit wider at the middle. Vertical stripes are not my piece of cake even thought I gave them a try because of the stripy pants trend that went on this summer. But I do not recommend them if you are not that good at mix&match.

I wore this superb skirt with a simple tee and added a pop of color with my clutch and necklace (that matched by chance). That made it feel like the center piece and didn’t gave my look a heavy feeling. Au contraire, it kind of felt easy breezy.

Now I must admit we took these photos on a beautiful day of September, not knowing anything about what was about to follow.( I’m talking about the “November” rain out there). So I strictly recommend you add at least a biker leather jacket and change the sandals with some sexy booties.

Last time I declared my love for stripes was here.

Dungile sunt un print clasic (pe care il ador). Nu avem nevoie de niciun designer sa ne spuna ca sunt in tendinte pentru a le purta. Pur si simplu sunt pline de stil. Si chiar daca multe persoane le asociaza cu vara, dungile nu au sezon si nu au un timp in care nu ar fi potrivite. Cum puteti sa le reinventati in tinutele voastre? Simplu: purtandu-le pe o piesa in partea de jos si nu ca top.

Singurul secret este sa folositi dungile in avantajul vostru. Asta inseamna ca veti purta dungi orizontale doar daca purtati S sau M si veti alege o varianta de dungi mai subtiri si mai delicate, daca treceti de aceste masuri. Dungile verticale – a caror fan recunosc ca nu sunt – sunt o problema ceva mai complexa in styling. Va sugerez sa le evitati daca nu va descurcati foarte bine la mix&match.

Un alt lucru important atunci cand porti o piesa atat de puternica – precum aceasta fusta maxi imprimata – este sa o lasi sa fie centrul atentiei si sa nu-i faci concurenta adaugand o alta piesa statement.

Eu am purtat-o cu un tricou simplu alb si am adaugat putina culoare printr-un colier si un clutch (care intamplator au aceeasi culoare, dar in general spun nu la astfel de potriveli). Per total acest look nu e sufocant si asta a fost si intentia.

In fine, recunosc ca am facut pozele intr-o zi calda si frumoasa de Septembrie – fara sa ma gandesc macar ca o sa urmeze atat de curand frigul si ploaia de acum. Deci va recomand calduros sa incercati aceasta tinuta cu o jacheta biker din piele pe deasupra si cu botine, in loc de sandale.

Ultima oara mi-am declarat dragostea pentru dungi aici.

Va astept si pe Facebook si pe Instagram @CristinaFeather!
