Stars and Stripes Forever!!

Well I’m not sure about the stars, but stripes are definitely coming back in style! And believe it or not, stripes can be fun too! The fabulous thing about stripes is they are coming back in an array of bright colors and the designs range from large to small. Stripes also can be vertical, diagonal, chevron or the traditional horizontal. And the awesome trick they say about horizontal stripes is that they make you appear slimmer! J

From a multi-colored Louis Vuitton striped dress to a chic stripe inspired Prada purse; stripes will be making a big emergence over the next couple of months. So break out the bell bottoms (which are re-emerging also), pencil skirt, stirrup leggings, or jean shorts to pair with your striped retro look. You can dress it up or down depending on the look you’re going for. To dress it up, accessorize your striped look with a color pump or large earrings in a bold color that compliment the colors in your look. Try not to match your accessories to the exact color of your stripes, instead go a few hues lighter or darker or pick a different color or design all together. As long as your palette flows, you’re good! J

Mint Message:
Try to pair your striped top or bottom with a pastel floral print! This will create a fun and flirty spring/summer look and give you an opportunity to let your artist juices flow. If you’re not into striped clothing, you can also add a little excitement by adding a striped hat, purse, shoes or nail design. The options are limitless, so gets to striping! Lol…
