Leave it to super model and “It” girl Kendall Jenner to give us a fabulous piece of style inspiration for us to aspire to this summer. Black and white stripes are far from a ground-breaking trend, but it’s a chic one nonetheless, and we’re all over this bold pattern for summer. The print has always possessed a certain amount of edge, leaving us powerless against its allure. Whether you pair it with leather, lace or even denim, black and white stripes are a guaranteed way to make a statement — and a fierce one, at that.
The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to this timeless pattern, and for summer, it’s all about keeping things short and sweet. We love a striped blouse paired with leather shorts — the perfect combination of elegant edge. Pair this ensemble with luxe gold jewelry and chic scrappy sandals or pointy-toe pumps to become the envy of every other fashion lover in the room. You can also opt for a flouncy skirt or a body con version. Just tuck in your striped blouse and — voila! — you’re ready to party the night away with the best of them.
Accessories are another fab way to incorporate black and white strips into your summer, just look to shoes and purses to get the job done. We adore striped clutches paired with bold and bright manicures to add a little oomph to any ensemble. Better yet, choose a pair of striped bumps with an adorable black and white ensemble for extra flair. Be sure to accompany these chic looks with a little something extra up top. A swipe of vivid red, fuchsia or orange lipstick is ideal for sweet, sweet summer.
