Stripes are one of the biggest trends for Spring 2017, and every iteration was seen on the runway at New York Fashion Week. There were classic Breton stripes, bold multi-colored patterns, mini pinstripes, and even 1960’s style mix-and-match (yes, you can wear stripes of different sizes and colors in the same outfit!). This print should be in your spring ensemble. Why? It’s actually very wearable and easy to style.
For a timeless nautical look, stick to stripes in classic colors such as red, yellow and blue. That’s why I like this ocean-inspired, off-the-shoulder crop top from the Jetset Diaries.
It has blue and white thin vertical stripes, feels light and airy, and most importantly for me, has a snug, elasticized neckline that fits well around petite frames. It can be a real challenge to find off-the-shoulder tops that fit smaller chests and torsos properly. No worries here about this top slipping or sliding.
There is also an elasticated bralette underneath for added coverage and support.
The crop-top is also a piece that can easily transition from day to night, simply by switching from a pair of jeans to a flirty skirt, or swapping neutral colors such as white for black.
Elevate the evening look with a great pair of statement earrings. I added a pop of color with red, which is a color that goes well with neutrals such as black, white, and chambray.
I would stay away from chunky necklaces, as off-the-shoulder tops are meant to elongate the neck and show off the décolletage.The ‘Haven’ Off-the-Shoulder Top from the Jetset Diaries can be found here.
These stunning ‘Impatiens’ Flower Lace Petal drop earrings from Oscar de la Renta can be found here. You are sure to receive compliments on these earrings. Right now, get $100 off these earrings from Neiman Marcus by using the code “Fashion” at check out! The solid petals version can be found here at Saks.
The ruffled pencil skirt from BCBG is no longer available, but a petite-friendly similar can be found here. I love their slimming pencil skirts, which are made of thick stretch fabric that help hold tummies and bulges in.
