Happy In Stripes

Back in January, when I first splurged on these Alice & Olivia slacks, I honestly didn’t have a clue how much I would wear them :/ all I knew was it was love at first sight and I had to have them!

I feared that with the slack’s combination of dramatic stripes and wide-leg bottoms I would have a difficult time getting my money’s worth out of these bold beauties.

But as it turns out = they are extremely versatile and I am wearing them AT LEAST once a week, which is both awesome and so unexpected!

And you know what my über simple secret is?? All you need are other items in your wardrobe that have black and white in them too! Seriously, that easy!!

For example [last month] my “Wild Flower” outfit was styled with my orange, green, black and white Marimekko blouse and these slacks AND now I’m pairing them with a blue, black and white sweater this month! I wonder what May will bring?!

SO, what do you think about it current bold black and white stripe trend?? Love it? Hate it? Not sure?? Well, I’m in love and if you’re anything like me, you will too! AND I’ve also just noticed that Topshop just released a bunch of black and white striped articles of clothing like my Alice & Olivia slacks on their site :) INCLUDING this very chic striped suit jacket!
