workwear wednesday: for the love of stripes

Hi all, so this week I don’t have a brand new work outfit to share. Instead I’m going to share some of my favorites striped outfits that would be perfect office attire.

I’m sure you’ve heard the adages that “horizontal stripes aren’t flattering on curvy people” and “stripes make you look fat.” Well, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. I think stripes are visually interesting, flattering, and fun for all body types. That makes a striped top, skirt, dress, or jacket the perfect part of a work ensemble. I like to pair stripes with another interesting print, like floral prints or polka dots.

My friend Justine from The Thrifty Girl’s Guide is also posting her favorite striped work outfit for #WorkwearWednesday so don’t forget to check her out!

What do you think of stripes? Would you wear stripes to work? if so, how would you style a striped piece?

  1. I adore the strappy dress with the red belt. I am also a big fan of stripes. I love wearing a stripy top with a solid colour lower half – usually a skirt or trousers.
