It’s no secret that a little bit of pattern can be a great focal point for most outfits and that stripes have been a constant presence among the outfits endorsed by some of the most important retailers. Madewell has based an entire lookbook around the beloved pattern and the variety of looks endorsed certainly have the potential to dazzle stripe lovers and fashionistas looking for simple yet uber trendy combos in the brand’s well known style.

From large pieces to more discreet accessories, selecting the placement is the first step towards creating a fabulous look. The area that will be emphasized by the beloved pattern will be the one that stands out the most, so selecting a body area you’ll be proud to flaunt is the key for success.

Whether you choose a simple touch or you go bold with a large printed piece, it depends entirely on your comfort zone.

Though fun, flirty dresses are always a big hit during the summer season, being fashionable and easy to wear, most of us look for a little structure and proportions when looking for a more polished look.
