spring 2013 trends: part II of III

my second favorite trend for spring? stripes! i was in holt renfrew at the end of the year and i spotted the t by alexander wang spring ’13 collection. tried it all on, and left with a happy wallet (untouched). i have always loved striped separates and find it fun & easy to pair them with other pattered or solid pieces. all that talk about rules applying? ignore it!

if you aren’t sure how to wear stripes, start by pairing a striped separate with neutrals; for example, try wearing the bcbg max azria striped bandage skirt worn with a solid black blouse. if you are feeling more adventurous, throw on your spring stripes with bright colours or florals. that t by alexander wang striped tee would look so cute worn with some patterned jeans… i have a snake print pair that would be perfect. i have so much fun mixing prints!
