Black and white stripes are striking and still in style, as proved by the celebs that have been strutting them to Fashion Week and fabulous events. Wide, small, tight, and tall—yet still figure flattering! Mix them with textures, wear them as accessories, and flaunt them in a dress.
Just make sure you keep it all in line, like the celebs below:
Shenae Grimes looks princess chic in this striped balloon dress and ankle strap Mary-Janes. Who knew a 90210 babe could look so sweet.
At a Dior show from Fashion Weeks past, Ivana wears hers around her neck in fur that look classic but not overdone. The perfect accent to her stone-colored suit.
Diane von Furstenberg
At the Alexander Wang show from his spring collection showcased in NY, the wrap dress queen wraps hers around an all-black ensemble for a classic DVF look
The Celestino line by Sergio Guadarrama is known for his head-turning gowns and actress Pooja Kumar made him proud in her modern take on an Indian-inspired dress with wide stripes and pink at the edges.
To tone down stripes that are too statement making, layer them under a tough leather vest like Mena Suvari at the G Star show for NY Fashion Week Spring '10.
Alexa Chung loves Luella and her stripes following in the footsteps of Mena Suvari by layering hers under a cute romper with flats at Luella's Spring '10 show in London.
Horizontal stripes can be flattering? Yes they can if you wear them like Gabriella Union at the Tracey Reese show this past September.
