Blocked and Bright Stripes


Arguably the most popular trend across the board this season is blocked and brightly coloured stripes – particularly featuring primary colours. Everyone from RED Valentino, to Givenchy and Chloe, to Banana Republic featured bold and bright coloured stripes in their S/S 17 collections, and Elle, Vogue, and InStyle all documented the trend in their articles on Spring 2017 trends. Even if you’re not reading up on those sites – which I usually don’t except for every pre-Spring blues season – you’ve probably picked up on this trend.b4b5b1b6b3

For this look I picked out an old, thrifted red and blue chunky striped top – originally from Joe Fresh according to the tag, and I paired it with my new black overalls (thanks mom!) to give the outfit a bit more ‘me’ in it. I think the thrift store is one of the best places to shop because a. it’s cheap!! And when you’re paying out the butt for tuition that’s a really nice added bonus!!! b. it’s good for the environment so hey, that’s a plus, and c. most important to me, it’s easy to find basic things, as well as iconic closet pieces that no one else will have. This top is pretty a pretty standard striped top, except it’s pretty boxy in its cut and its made out of a thick material – ya see what I mean?

For shoes I generally go with heeled black boots OR my classic doc martens when I wear overalls. Depends how I’m feeling on the day.
