Stripes dominated January’s Lookbook at the beginning of 2016 and you will see why that is so.
Stripes – at the risk of sounding painfully repetitive, are versatile. They are a neutral and oh so not demanding, especially when they’re on a smaller size scale and are rendered in color combos of the monochromatic flavor.
My favorite would be the skinnier stripe versions but a mix of a chunky and other sized stripes can definitely add a fun factor to a look when styled strategically. Chunkier stripes can take away inches from your length so it is wise to try on a striped piece before committing to a purchase to see how the design actually translates on your figure.
This is in the spirit of clever-shopping and dressing of course and to avoid that regretful feeling associated with impulsive shopping behavior and a wardrobe filled with stuff you’re loathed to wear. If this isn’t a form of insanity, I don’t know what is!
After a round of Lookbook trawling and noticing that January 2016 was packed with stripe-wearing fashionistas who dazzled in their lined looks, it’s really not hard to accept why the neutral print trend triggers a chain reaction of stripe-appreciating behavior.

Maybe you’re not perfect, but you’re willing to actually look at yourself and take some kind of accountability. That’s a change. It might not mean that you can turn everything around, but I think there’s something incredibly hopeful about that. — Brie Larson
