SHOPPING: Black and White Striped Skirts
I've been enjoying the recent striped trend. I have a variety of black and white striped pieces in my wardrobe...dresses, tops, cardigans, leggings, and skirts. Separates lend themselves to fit many body types, unlike a full dress. We're exploring stripes this week through next, so today I'm featuring striped skirts. I have a maxi, two minis, and a knee length tube skirt. With the right undergarments (mine are tight, so flesh colored thongs are needed) they look great hugging my curves. Stripes are one of those prints that can be tricky to wear. Some people look great in horizontal stripes and some don't. That can be a shape thing, but also a personal view. As you can see below, I selected a variety of striped skirts. Some of them are basic horizontal or vertical stripes. The others play with the stripes, accenting the body shape or breaking up the lines. There are even more ones available. The ones I've chosen are all currently available for purchase online.

Make sure you purchase one that works well on your body and will be a long term staple pieces in your closet, not something you'll only wear for a season and want to part with quickly. Trends can be fickle, but if you know how to chose pieces for your body type and style preference, you can make a trendy piece into a classic wardrobe piece.
