A Style Truly Yours

How to Wear Stripes May 15 2014, 0 Comments

A popular trend found across all runway shows for Spring 2014 was stripes.  All types and styles of stripes were shown: skinny, bold, uneven, and head to toe.

Styling and wearing stripes can be intimidating. No one wants to look larger than they are or cartoonish. However, stripes can be very chic when worn the right way. Below are a few tips on how every girl can pull off stripes.

1. Vertical Stripes: Girls who are short or who want to make a certain area look smaller, should wear vertical stripes. These create a lengthening illusion. The long stripes cause the eyes to look upward and make your body appear long and lean.

2. Horizontal Stripes: Girls who are petite or wish to make a certain area look bigger, such as your bust, should wear horizontal stripes.  These stripes draw attention to the area and accentuate your curves.

3. Mixing Stripes: This is a tougher look to pull off, but it can be done the right way. Try finding a similarity in your two pieces to pull the look together.  Find two pieces that have similar colors, angles, or stripe widths.

Here at Truly Yours, we are falling in love with the stripe craze! Two of our newest arrivals are striped and gorgeous!

Our On The Veranda Dress has bold black and white stripes from head to toe and our Live For The Applause Dress has a mixture of striped detailing on the bust.

OOTD- Striped Maxi Skirt May 15 2014, 0 Comments

Two of our favorite things this season have been bold stripes and maxi skirts. We were instantly in love when we found our Seeing Stripes Skirt and we couldn’t wait to style it in today’s post!

This maxi skirt has black and white stripes, making it so versatile and allows you to pair it with almost any solid color top.  We paired it with our pink Tank You Very Much top.  We tucked it in to the skirt so we could show off the fold over waistband.  This fold over waistband is adjustable so it makes the skirt wearable for all-tall or short. Another reason we’re obsessed with this skirt is because it is so comfortable! It is a light weight cotton making it cool and easy to wear during hot Spring and Summer days! 

Along with our Seeing Stripes Maxi Skirt and Tank You Very Much Top we paired our Accordian To You Necklace.  Because the skirt is so bold, we didn’t want to draw much attention away from it.  This necklace is simple, but also hits at the perfect spot with this tank to give you some coverage across your chest.
