MONDAY STYLIST: Stripes Everywhere

Hi all!!
I’ve been seeing stripes everywhere, have you? Some Kenyan Fashion Bloggers and I recently started our own Whatsapp group and our first style challenge is to rock some stripes and make a post on it. It was only after this that I realized I have very few stripy things. I wanted more!! Especially in the black and white formula, you know, knock two birds with the same stone, the stripes and black and white trend.
So on this week’s Monday Stylist on i2s I will put together some outfits featuring stripes using inspiration I’ve gotten from bloggers, celebrities and people on the street. Let me know what you think in the comments below. And, if you would like to learn how to style any item of clothing, of the outerwear variety, hit me up on my Facebook page or email.

1.       Formally Striped
For a more business-like outfit, the kind you can wear to work, I would go for a striped blouse or blazer paired with a pair of black trousers for a more serious look. Alternatively, adding a pair of striped heels or handbag to your ordinary work suit would be a unique take to the trend.

2. Casually Striped
If you work in a more relaxed environment or are a student, I’d say get more adventurous and buy yourself some striped trousers of the straight-leg variety. These look so different from what people would otherwise wear i.e. pinstriped trousers. Pair them with a loose fitting top perhaps sheer and add a floral or leather jacket to keep you warm if the temperatures drop.

Alternatively, you could wear a striped maxi dress or pencil skirt to make you stand out from the crowd, after all, by writing these posts, I aim to encourage you to dare to be different, dare to be you.

How would you wear your stripes? Let me know in the comments.
