Shaped by Stripes | Pinspiration

We’ve been sharing our favorite #shapedbystripes looks this month, featuring similar striped skirts that each of us own or have swapped. Here’s a roundup of some more inspiring looks we found on Pinterest:


This simple look via pairs a classic chambray shirt and white flats with a crisp striped skirt for a fresh and tailored look.


Speaking of preppy, Gal Meets Glam gives her navy and white skirt a warm and feminine appeal with a simple blush long-sleeved top (love that quilted clutch, too).


Do you mix brown and black? Stylish Petite makes a great case for breaking this fashion “rule” with this chic ensemble. The rich brown tones of the bag and belt really make the skirt pop.


Two great stripes that go great together! This look from Atlantic Pacific smartly blends striped separates of similar widths in a look that’s both simple and statement-making.


This pin from Wanted Style makes a strong case for how much fun you can have playhing with color against a black-and-white piece. Now, where can we find those pom-pom heels??

We’ve had fun styling our striped skirts this month, and we’d love to have you join in! Tag #shapedbystripes to share your favorite looks or inspos so we can share! You can find us on Instagram at @shapedbystyle.

Happy April! This month, all of us Shaped by Style gals are going to share our own take on an accordion pleat black (or navy) and white striped skirt. Now, we’re not swapping these skirts, we just all happen to have one – well, okay, maybe a few of us hurriedly thrifted one after this idea was born – and we are excited to start this series in April titled “Shaped by Stripes.”

While we are already going along the theme of swapping the same garment amongst ourselves to share how we can style it, this is the first time we will all have the exact same garment to style! I like to think of this series as our own version of the Little Black Dress, except instead, it’s the Little Striped Skirt.

For myself, I definitely love color and pattern mixing, and if I had a floral shirt I would have paired floral with these stripes. But, I think leopard print shoes and a polka dot headband make up for the lack of flowers pretty well. This headscarf was actually a little gift from Hannah!

And, since I love color, I had to add something bright. This almost neon yellow shirt is always my go-to when I want something super saturated.

Accordion pleat skirts can sometimes be a bit scary, I think; they like to hug your curves, which can be good and bad, depending on the day. This particular skirt was actually once a dress – a really ugly one — that I snagged at the thrift store for a dollar simply because I thought it was outrageous. I’m glad I did, too! After hacking off the top entirely, it made a really great skirt and basically birthed this whole series!
