April certainly has brought with it the flavor of autumn. Its time to dust off the coats, bring out the scarves and be ready for cooler weather. I’ve been studying mixed patterns with great interest recently and I decided to try it out albeit a little conservatively. I guess there couldn’t have been a better choice than stripes to begin, also since they are a big trend this season its an added bonus!
Stripes take center stage with shades of beige and tan creating the perfect palette for ’fall’. This is an ideal weekend look with the right mix of relaxed and chic! The flat ‘bandage’ sandals, classic bag and arm party all work well to polish and finish the look in style. I loved the tee for the fact that the stripes differ dramatically on the front. back and sleeves; creating so much interest (needless to say it was scored on sale!)
A long sleeve striped tee will take you a long way this season, whether its a base for mixed prints or worn with colored denim or a pencil skirt. Its such a classic piece, versatile and ‘Parisian’ chic. Agreed?
Experiment with stripes in Autumn’14 for your very own ‘Parisian chic’ look!
