Must Have Fashion Essential – Black and White Stripes

15 May

In fashion, there are very few pieces that truly go with everything – the only clothes that come to mind are denim jeans, white tees or khakis. However, I think I have finally stumbled upon another go with everything clothing option – black and white stripes. I haven’t met a paring yet I haven’t loved. Whether its with a color or even another print, B&W stripes always seem to pull an outfit together. They also can be dressed up or down, working double duty as a great casual or work-wear piece.

Here are some great outfits featuring stripes:

Do you own a B&W stripe staple? What other clothing items do you think look great with any outfit?

    One of my favorite things to pair black and white stripes with is florals. Every time I see that combo I immediately love it.

      I love that pairing too! It’s so feminine.

    I’m VERY short- so I keep my horizontal stripes on the top half. Normally I go for neutrals or solid color blocking…. I’m loving the BCBG and Ann Taylor looks….

      Agreed – styling stripes can be tricky for different body types.
