stripes go with everything

how to wear prints to the office



Wearing prints is a fantastic way to elevate your outfit and stand out in a crowd, because most people are afraid of them. But where to start, if your closet is full of solid colors?

Give black and white stripes a try. It is a painless way to ease in to wearing prints, because stripes go with everything! A black and white striped anything is just like wearing that same thing in solid black or solid white, only much more interesting.

That visual interest goes a long way in making you look unique, and in turn making you feel confident and happy.

The wool dress above could be paired with pretty much any blazer to create a great outfit to wear to the office. But a striped blazer automatically creates a more stylish outfit, with literally no effort on your part. Best of all: that same blazer can also be worn with all your other solid colored dresses and blouses!

The stripes also easily compliment the mandala-style design on the regina tote. Don’t think wearing an interesting jacket means you have to carry a plain bag. There’s never a good reason to carry a plain bag! 🙂
