Good afternoon lovelies!
It’s been a while since my last Ways to Wear, hasn’t it? I completely forgot about writing a feature last week, and didn’t want to post a half-hearted attempt, if you know what I mean. I hope you’re all enjoying the week? I’m finding it difficult to relax and hayfever has absolutely gotten the best of me recently, but I’m just about coping.
As requested by Jasmine, I’m covering stripes this week. The looks I’ve created are pretty different to what I usually post. They’re not as wearable to the everyday girl, but I do want these features to continually inspire my readers to try new things outside of their comfort zone.
The ever-elusive stripe.
I’m forever inundated with comments and emails about wearing stripes, so I decided to put a little twist to this week’s feature. Rather than focusing on a set item, I’ve incorporated a variety of striped pieces.
Do you like these types of Ways to Wear too?
These striped shorts by ASOS are so sweet. High-waisted, they bring a dynamic ’50s feel to the look. I’d style the look by tucking the ‘Meow’ T-shirt into the shorts and adding a belt for a polished finish.
Waterfall waistcoats sound next-level awful on paper, but I think it’d bring an adorable laid-back, summery feel to this outfit. Size up for a chic oversized fit that pertains to a bohemian silhouette.
I originally styled this look with a striped dress and plain batwing cardigan, but this version neatly fits into the colour-blocked trend.
Breaking all the rules by putting polka dots and stripes together, but I think it’d look nice in a quirky way. I added with some bright, plaited sandals, et voila. You have a perfectly summery outfit to wear to the beach, to a coffee date, or for everyday. Finally, curl your hair into tousled waves and pull to one side in a low ponytail for an easy season-appropriate hairstyle.
My third Look isn’t something I’d personally wear, it’s a look I’d love to try but currently don’t have the confidence to pull off.
Asymmetrical hem midi skirts are one of my favourite micro trends right now – so flattering and simple. Wear this skirt on your hips or slightly higher up, covering your belly button, and pop this tie-dye denim bralette on for the ultimate ’90s aesthetic.
I’ve added stripes via this two-way headband, which is very high on my covet list, wear it to the side of the head with messy, undone hair.
I’ve also included some links below to previous Ways to Wear articles that have involved stripes.
Each edition will almost always link up to another one, so flick back throughout the series if you are looking for some inspiration. I do have another request lined up for next week, but if you’d like to email me your own request, please also link me to an image/webpage of your chosen item! Have a lovely Wednesday!
