I'm wrapping up New York Fashion Week in style today with a pair of stretch denim jeans and a black and white striped blouse with crystal embellishments, all from Macy's INC International Concepts. This is the perfect outfit to take me from my daytime writing duties to my parents’ home where I’ll be helping to prep for the upcoming Jewish holiday because it's on-trend, while also being comfortable.
While stripes never really go out of fashion, they were huge on the runways this season, even making their way into Carolina Herrera's collection where they were used to liven up countless looks, including a crop top. People are often afraid of stripes — especially horizontal ones — but they can actually be your best friend. The key is to pair the stripes with a solid to so your look has just one focal point. It also helps to offset the stripes, like in the top pictured here, with a contrasting texture. Lastly, stripes come in so many color variations these days, pick ones that complement your complexion and you'll have no reason to fret.
