By far, one of the most striking ways to style the stripe print is wearing stripes on stripes. A bold pairing, it requires some consideration to avoid looking like a jailhouse outfit. When dressing up multiple stripes, be sure to pick the most flattering print for your body type, whether diagonal, horizontal or vertical. This outfit features a top with horizontal thin black and white stripes, while the trousers has the wider horizontal print. Not only does this create contrast but it avoids the pieces looking like a onesie. Also the key is to wear the bolder or wider stripes on the bottom to create a more flattering silhouette.

If your stripe pairings has similar widths and direction, try breaking it up with accessories like a waist belt as shown in how to wear double stripes. Likewise add shoes and bags in differing bold colours for added contrast like these burgundy heels. This is a great way to avoid giving yourself and others blurred vision. A great outfit is made up of simple pieces and pieces with not so simple prints that do all the work for you are even better. Lastly, if you love stripes but find doubling up too daunting, try mixing it with other prints. Some style ideas include mixing polkadots and stripes and wearing stripes and checks or you can just keep it classic by wearing stripes with yellow.
