Crazy for Stripes

This was actually the theme for work last weekend, Bakers was crazy for stripes, wearing everything from skirts, to dresses, to ties. I had a hard time coming up with something to wear since I've always tried to stay away from horizontal stripes as bottoms, because they tend to make you look wider. But I believe that if done right, you can look fabulous and rock this trend, no matter what your body type is. I kept it basic with black and white and added a royal blue blazer to bring the outfit together, and add some color. If you're worried about not being able to pull off stripes, just keep in mind that its all about the balance. Since the color scheme is usually black and white, you can add a pop of color with your top. Stripes can be a little intimidating, but they also make an outfit fun and exciting, adding a little edge.
