How We Wore It: Stripes

Happy Monday! It’s Kristina, and today I’m adding to our series of occasional posts showing how the women of Shaped by Style wore a particular style, trend or look. I thought I’d showcase how we all wear one of the most timeless patterns known to woman: stripes!


As I trawled through everyone’s archives for stripey outfits, I was surprised by how colorful our stripes were! In the back of my mind, I’ve always associated “stripes” with “black and white” even though I have quite a few striped tops that are colors, but I love how the variety of looks showcase everything from timeless to casual to outlandish!

Emily’s stripes are rainbow-colored, and I love how she pulled colors from her sweater to accessorize and brighten up the look! Pairing the striped top with a white skirt keeps it classic and timeless, while the colorful stripes add a bit of whimsy to her look.


You can see more of her outfit here.


Rebecca went with florals and stripes — a mix dear to my heart! — and added a gorgeous plum colored bag and the perfect pair of sandals to compliment the colors in her dress. I love how classic this look is!


While she’s moved to a new blog, you can see the rest of Rebecca’s look on her Pinterest board, here.

Hannah’s stripes — more colorful ones! — paired perfectly with a textured mint green skirt, and those FLATS, you guys! I love how she combined red and green without coming off as too Christmassy (even though she could have gotten away with that in this snowy setting!)

In her signature brazenly colorful and kitschy style, which I adore, Skye styled the most fantastic striped dress I have ever seen with equally colorful and amazing accessories. Including a purple hat, a rainbow striped bag, a cape, and a fantastic brooch. It’s the most fun striped look I’ve ever seen, and makes me want to get myself a colorful striped dress!

Ever classic and feminine, Lyndey’s stripes are chevrons (those totally count!) and I LOVE the necklace she added to complete her look! With a wide belt and some pretty silver studded flats, this is such a wearable, pretty, and easy outfit!

And last of all, I wore stripes back when I was a few months pregnant with Evie, in the aforementioned all black and white that I usually associate them with, and mixed three different patterns. Which seems to be my go-to. I love every piece in this outfit, and how versatile the pieces are! Plus, polka dots, which as you know we are all addicted to and have already covered in this post.
