Stripes are the New Neutrals: Outfit of the Day

Stripes have invaded the fashion scene like no other trend. Or maybe they were always a part of the ever-evolving fashion scenario and just did not notice. Whatever be the case, I can surely vouch for one thing and that is the fact that no wardrobe is complete without a striped-top. They are the new neutrals, so easy to wear and even easier to layer (how it rhymes beautifully! Haha). Think about it, just a plain combo of jeans and striped-tee can be taken a notch up by adding a third piece...say a chambray shirt, a lightweight jacket or a solid bright scarf.

So I did exactly the same when I teamed up my striped-tee with a pair of skinny jeans and added a hot pink scarf to make the outfit bright and colourful. Although the striped tee and skinny jeans were fine by themselves, adding a bright scarf brought a little interest to the outfit. It gives the impressions that I’ve put in some effort to put this outfit together whereas in reality I just wrapped a scarf around my neck (This scarf was previously worn here). I also wore some hoop earrings (one of my favourites). I stacked my wrist with my usual rose-gold watch, pearl bracelet and pink and silver bangles and my choice of footwear was my silver flats. The bag I carried was my brown sling/fringe bag. Since on weekdays I have no choice but to carry my humongous bag, on weekends I try to stick to my little sling bags (good for the shoulders I say).
