Spring dressing usually calls for a plethora of bold colors and saturated prints, but as much as we love our neons, florals, and pastels, one of our favorite spring trends is classic black and white stripes. The easiest way to make this look work without resembling an inmate? Look for tailored, body-conscious pieces, and break up the outfit with statement accessories–from a chic waist-belt to a bold necklace–in bold, contrasting colors.
Now when it comes to your black and white stripe selection, the options are limitless. We love horizontal black and white stripes on everything from dresses and skirts to shorts and pants. And luckily, just about all of our favorite designers, including Tibi, Alice & Olivia, J.Crew, and Gap, are embracing stripes.
