My Style: Bold Stripes

Today's Look: is bold and chic, with dramatic contrast, sexy sheerness, and edgy details. To start the look off, I chose high-waisted, striped shorts and a black, sheer blouse.  Sometimes, striped clothing has a reputation of being unflattering.  These shorts, however, have a modern cut and variation in the direction of the stripes, causing a slimming effect rather than widening. Since the top has gold flourishes, I chose a bold, gold and black necklace.  The necklace has a thick, gold chain with dark, sharp triangle pendants.  Next, I chose black, high-heeled ankle boots and a black, studded clutch.  The boots are unique featuring back cutouts while the clutch is edgy with dark studs and skull imprints.  Finishing off the look, I chose two gold rings, a white leather bracelet with charms saying "FIERCE," gold stud earrings and dual-tone sunglasses with black and leopard print.

Fashion Tip:  When wearing black and white stripes, pair the item with solid colored pieces to avoid detracting from the statement piece.
