More often than not, horizontal striped garments are dismissed as being unflattering. I must admit, at one point in time I avoided them too. Well, if you have also developed a new fond appreciation for the classic print, check out this cute striped top from the women’s online boutique, ShopPinkBlush.
Believe me when I say, horizontal stripes do not have to be boring…it will just require you to do a little bit of thinking outside of the box! For example, during my initial outfit planning session with this striped top, from PinkBlush Boutique, black denim seemed like an obvious match. While I always planned on mixing prints by incorporating a leopard print scarf, when I tried on the top with black pants, one word came to mind: MEH. Considering it is my job to provide y’all with quality “fashspiration,” outfit option number one was not going to cut it. Despite the casual nature of the top, it became quite obvious to pair it with black over-the-knee boots instead. Voila! Just like that the top went from good to great.
Playing off of the suede pockets, I looped a camel and black infinity scarf around my neck to tie in all of the neutral hues. I accessorized further toping the shirt with a fringe cardigan vest, tassel earrings, and oversized black mirrored sunnies. Completing the look with some drama, I threw my hair in a sock-bun and painted on a bright red lip. Now that is what I call horizontal stripes with a twist! Keep this post and PinkBlush in mind the next time you’re surfing the web for trendy boutiques online, or cute dresses for women.
