When my official blog photographer (aka my husband) saw what I was wearing for the day, his automatic reaction was "stripes with stripes - can you do that?" All I could think of for a response was simply "why not!" If there is a fashion rule book, I unfortunately never received a copy. My love for anything striped runs deep; I love how the pattern gives any outfit a more classic and clean appearance. I really like how mixing the same pattern (in different variations) worked out - so much so that I may never seek out that elusive fashion rule book. Read on for outfit details, and additional photos.

The trick to wearing two similar patterns together is to have enough of a difference between the two. For example, the stripes on this H&M dress are slim, very close together and in a very dark navy. The striped scarf is done in a much lighter blue, with more space between the pattern and in a much lighter material.
What do you think about wearing stripes with stripes? Is it something that you will be wearing for Spring?
Have a great day and until next time!
