Ever feel like all the trends from the runway just don’t make sense if you’re a person doing normal things like laundry and commuting to work?
Not to worry. Even if getting fashion tips from the runway feels a little tricky, trends tend to trickle down to bloggers and editors like myself who interpret them in a more relatable way so that you can find pieces that don’t cost all of next month’s rent and know how to put them together.
Classic stripes are a continuous trend on and off the runway because they’re so versatile, but the best thing to do is to jazz it up those stripes with cool accessories and bright colors to really make the look. So we found 5 stylish bloggers and got some ideas from them. Scroll down below to see how to wear the looks and shop your favorite items.
Gabi stays slaying.
Instead of wearing stripes in more a traditional way, try it in a crossover top like this one Gabi is wearing. It’s a fun way to show off your stomach, and looks best with high-waisted jeans or culottes and bright white sandals to make it pop.

Allison’s fun and casual take on the trend.
If you already have a striped dress and want to wear it in a less feminine way, utility jackets and bombers are just what you’re looking for. The army green offsets the girly-ness of the dress, and you can wear it with sneakers or ankle boots depending on your preference.

I was recently introduced to @slink_jeans — a premium denim brand based in Los Angeles. They're so soft that I literally checked the label to see if there was cashmere blended in… No joke. I totally get why people wear jeans & sneakers all the time; is this how comfortable everyday life can feel?! Denim starts at a size 10 and goes up to a 24!

Nicolette always brings a fresh vibe.
Looking cute at brunch on the weekends is easy with a little help from Nicollete’s outfit. Find a striped top that has some different detail about it, whether it be a see-through tunic like hers or a lace-up details to keep it from looking boring. Paired with classic Adidas and jeans, you’ll be the cutest one in that post brunch Instagram photo.

Jay giving us inspiration for job interviews.
For work you obviously have to look professional, but there’s still room to have fun with classic stripes. Take a cue from Jay Miranda’s pairing of bright blazer and simple skirt—we like it with a sexier red blazer and ankle-strap heels.

We’re just as excited as Callie to wear this outfit.
The knee-length denim skirt is having a major comeback. It has that vintage, 60’s vibe with all the gold buttons in the front, and frayed edges on the bottom that are ideal for summer. We recommend wearing it with a bodysuit like the one below, so it easily tucks into the skirt.
