How to Wear Pinstripes


Pinstripes have undergone  a huge transformation this season. Once associated with attire strictly worn by businessmen, the motif has been spotted all over this summer worn by fashion girls. The conservative pattern received a playful makeover in styles such as off the shoulder tops, wrap skirts and jumpsuits. Pinstripes made a dynamic impact on each style. While summer will soon be coming to an end,  I see this style having longevity long after we’re swapping our open toed sandals for an ankle booties in luxe fabrics.

Not sure of which style will work for you? Rose gal has you covered. Here are my picks from the site.

  1. playsuit 2. tunic 3. dress 4. swimsuit 5. midi skirt 6. lace dress 

Style Tip: Remember less is more. Minimal accessories let the pinstripe pattern take center stage.

I kept things simple by pairing my faux wrap pinstripe skirt with a graphic tee. I love to mix patterns so I wore floral print heels. The ruffle edge ties are super cute and flattering.

Did you know that vertical stripes draw the eye up and down rather than side to side and create a narrower appearance? What’s there not to love about that?
