OOTD - Stripes on Stripes


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.



Striped Dress - H&M, Shirt - Top Shop (old), Striped Scarf - Joe Fresh
Booties - Target, Bag - Marc by Marc Jacobs Ukita


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!

    1. Thank you! The lipstick is my favourite - Mac's Pleasure bomb. It's a limited edition from the Rihanna collection, but I think Mac's 'Girl About Town' is almost the same :)
