Pattern Play: 3 Ways to Wear Stripes

this fourth of july, Forget the stars - go with the stripes

By Style Girlfriend | Last Updated: Oct 18 2016

It seems the impending July Fourth holiday has me in a patriotic mood. While stars aren’t necessarily up my alley, I can certainly get onboard with a good stripe to dress up any outfit.

How to wear stripes: Don’t be afraid to mix and match your stripes with other patterns. The key is to have contrasting patterns share a color – light blue stripes with a dark blue floral printed shirt..that kind of thing. You can even pair bolder stripes with a subdued striped, if you’ve got the guts.

Below, three summer looks that incorporate stripes:
