The Best Way To Style Stripes This Spring

black and yellow striped top and pencil skirt

There is something that can’t be denied this season, and it’s that vertical stripes are IN IN IN! They are everywhere and several of our shoppers have admitted to buying more than 7 new striped items for this season! Now, we don’t necessarily recommend going nuts and changing your entire wardrobe, but if you’re looking to stock up on some new pieces…you’ll wanna make sure they’re striped!

Striped Dresses For Spring/Summer

Since we all have our unique style…we thought it’d be best to split up our coverage of stripes. We’ve grabbed two examples of great dresses that you can rock this season to stay on trend.

This red striped dress is not only stylish, but incredibly flattering. The v-neck, criss cross neckline draws the eye downward to the cinched waist that accentuates your curves. This neckline can work with a variety of necklaces, but we chose a casual and charming choker that will add a little bling without going overboard. Because some people run cold, even in the summer, we’ve included a great neutral cardigan that will look wonderful layered on top.

If you prefer a more vibrant look, then you just have to try out this front knotted striped dress with multiple fun colors. We’ve chosen to pair this dress with a pair of charmingly unique sandal flats in yellow, and with a pair of fun printed earrings.

Striped Pants For Spring/Summer

If you’re looking to be a little bit more daring, then you should try out these vertical striped pants. They’re professional and polished, specially with the neutral button up top and the extra pop of color in the purse. Printed pants can be intimidating, but pairing them with fun and flirty neutrals is always a great way to start!

This look is similar in vibe, but different in style. Just as colorful and attention grabbing as the previous ensemble, but this look gives you the chance to mix prints and rock more earthy tones. We love this animal print cardigan with this pin-striped pair of pants. We chose a pair of heels sandals to dress this look up, but you could totally pull this off with a pair of comfy flats!

Striped Tops For Spring/Summer

If you’re hoping to stay simple and on trend, then you can’t go wrong with adding a vertical striped blouse to your wardrobe! This black and yellow blouse is simply perfection. The v-neck is flattering and there is a slight peplum on there too so that you can have your pulse on your two trends at once!

The best part about this trend is that there are blouses for all occasions! Take this blouse…it’ll pair nicely with this pair of high waist jeans, some subtle jewelry and a pair of neutral sandals! Now, we tend to favor tan purses here, but we decide to go outside of even our comfort level and find a lovely white handbag that’ll top off this ensemble perfectly!

How We Helped Our Client #Make_It_Hapin: Mint Pants & Striped Top

mint pant outfit

As the months continue to fly by it’s time for us to start thinking about Spring. Spring it the time to break out your fun and flashy colors. Our client knew this and so she submitted this awesome look to us! Her personal shopper went above and beyond finding her tons of great options to match her submission image. She didn’t want a blazer, but we decided to include on in the blog post in case any of you lovely readers wanted to purchase one!

Disclosure: Some of the links in this post are affiliate links. We may receive a small commission from purchases made from these links. We thank you in advance for using our links!

Let’s start from the top down! The mint bubble necklace is fun, flirty and great for adding pops of color to any ensemble. This outfit is all about matching colors together into one ensemble, but if that’s not your thing, then use this necklace to top off a little black dress or to dress up jeans and t-shirts!

This top is a perfect example of what makes our service so awesome. While we can’t always find exact matches to items, we’re often able to find pieces that embody the general feel of the item but with it’s own stylish flair. Our client went nuts over this top!

Our shoppers ended up finding tons of mint jeans for our client, but it turned out she wanted to rock some capris! Well, when our clients want something…we’ll work our butts off to find it for them!

As we said before, our client actually asked to skip the blazer for this outfit, but we thought we’d include one in the blog post anyway…we hope you love it!

Nude heels are such a great staple piece. They’re almost better and more versatile than black pumps since black shoes can often be too dark for certain ensembles. Nude and beige heels match with just about everything and can offer a lighter alternative to the black heel.

Olivia Munn got her start in television journalism before she made the switch to acting. A self proclaimed, nerd, she made us all fall in love with her through her roles in The Newsroom, X-Men and Beyond The Break. Her beauty is only outmatched by her wit and sense of style. For all these reasons and more, we’ve chosen to feature her in this week’s Celebrity Make It Hapin post!

This shirt is so clutch! Button up shirts are great on their own, but they’re also a perfect layering piece.

A cardigan will work for the layering look too!

You can never go wrong with a pair of black skinny jeans! They’re a solid staple that gives you the perfect base for any ensemble. Dress them up for a night out by putting on a sparkly top or dress down with an over-sized sweater.

The Best Kimonos For Spring And How To Style Them

pink and blue floral kimono

One of the hottest items for Spring/Summer is the Kimono. They’re flowy, bright and perfect for every day fashion or for special occasions. Recent styles have come out that are belted so they add an interesting dimension to the look, cinching the waist in the middle to accentuate the silhouette. We’ve gone out and found some of the best Kimonos on the market today and we’re showing you how to style them!

Have a spin class followed by a brunch date with the girls this weekend? No better way to go from working out to cheers-ing mimosas than to throw on a fun and fringe-y kimono! These pieces are meant to be statements so throwing one on a simple ensemble is the perfect way to style them!

Kimono: Kimono with Fringe

Tank top: Women’s Prana Glenna Tank Top

Leggings: High Waist 7/8 Leggings

Sneakers: Liz Claiborne Winslow Women’s Sneakers

Necklace: Women’s San Diego Hat Company Long Necklace with Three Chevron

We’re in love with this amazing floral kimono. The colors are vibrant and fun without being overwhelming. This is the perfect way to throw on a kimono for an every day look! It’s casual, yet sophisticated. The one sleeved crop top adds a funky element so when the kimono flows open, you still have an enticing ensemble on underneath!

Kimono: Multicolor Floral Casual Printed Long sleeve Kimono

Top: Women’s Wayf Kizzie One-Shoulder Crop Top

Jeans: Good Legs High Waist Skinny Jeans

Shoes: Sable Sandal

Looking for a more floral and delicate look? We get you and we got you! This floral kimono is bold and beautiful, and is perfectly offset by the distressed jean shorts. The roughness of the shorts tones down the kimono and keeps it from looking too formal. At the same time, the pale pink top brings out some of the vibrant shades in the floral print!

Kimono: Print Kimono Wrap

Top: Vero Moda Pink V-Neck Frill Top

Bottoms: Helena Denim Shorts

Shoes: Nice Sandals

Oh my oh my oh my! If you’re into turning heads then you’ll want to strut around town in this outfit. We chose a pair of wide legged pants to layer underneath the kimono. They’ll peak through the opening of the kimono and show off how chic you look! These pants are also very in style right now and so they’ll be a versatile addition to your closet. Tuck the white cami into the pants and throw on a pair of ankle strapped heels to finish off the ensemble!

Top: V-Neck Cami

Pants: Black tie waist wide leg pants

Shoes: Women’s Bandolino Anchor Ankle Strap Block Heel Sandal

Bag: Tara Soft Pu Tote Bag

Necklace: Flat Chain Necklace

Another clever way to incorporate a kimono into your closet is to use it like a blazer. Take this pinstriped kimono, for example. Typical blazers can be a bit too heavy for Summer so throw this one on instead! Layer it over a casual dress and add a pop of sparkle with a statement necklace and you’ll be ready for anything!

Kimono: Black Red Stripe Georgette Trench Kimono

Dress: Women’s Nic+Zoe Boardwalk Jersey High/low Dress

YES! We were able to find the exact match!! Nuff said…*mic drop*

Kimono

This gold tassel necklace is the perfect way to accessorize this look. It’s delicate but also unique so it will draw the right amount of attention. This piece is very versatile and will go well with many other ensembles, including high necklines.

Gold Tassel Necklace

You can never have too many basic tees! This one is of high quality and is a perfect base for many outfits. Pair it with boyfriend jeans like in this inspiration image or with a pair of shorts when Summer finally arrives!

White Tee

While we were unable to find the exact bag featured in the submission image, we saw that our client had other, more structured bags pinned to her board. We found that she loves tan bags with buckles and detailing and so we were able to find her this cross body bag that she absolutely loved!

Cross Body Bag

So our client was actually not a fan of distressed jeans so we found her a different pair. That said, we wanted to make sure you guys could re-create the ensemble if you wanted to so we’ve included a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans that are similar to the ones shown above.

Distressed Jeans

We’re very proud of these sandals and how closely they match the sandals in the original image. They’re comfortable and stylish, a perfect every day sandal for spring and summer because you don’t have to worry about buckles or straps, they just slide on and off!
