There is no other color combination as classic and sophisticated as black and white. And if there’s a pattern that, without fail, will not go out of style, it’s stripes. So, when you put the two together, you have arguably one of the most classic pieces you can possibly have in your wardrobe!

Even though black and white stripes have been around for ages, it’s a style that people are continually experimenting with and I love what I’ve been seeing lately!


This year, we are not only seeing striped tees, but blazers, structured tops and pants! Stripes are coming in both thin as well as thicker “prison stripes,” and being worn in both skinny styles and looser fits – the trend really is everywhere!

Because stripes are so diverse, you can dress them up or down. Think of them as a neutral pattern that can pair with anything. We love the idea of wearing stripes on stripes. You can achieve the look by pairing two different width stripes, or you can go more courageous, and pair the same width stripes on top and bottom. Avoid looking like a inmate by styling black and white stripes with navy and green stripes like in the first look above. Stripes in flirtier fits like cropped tops and form fitting dresses are another great way to be on trend this season!

We’re obsessed with the roundup of street styles because these girls prove that you can do just about anything with stripes! I love the idea of adding a pop of color to the black & mix, with a fall jacket perhaps?! {who is SO ready for a new fashion season??}
