Injecting some color to your striped ensemble is always a good idea. Don’t be shy when it comes to colors. You are allowed to experiment with colorful attires. Give an edge to your basic monochrome stripes by inserting some colors like bright blue, vivid red, or soft pink.

Veer vertical on bottom
When it comes to bottoms, especially pants, the best is to stick to vertical stripes.

Here is a helping tip to do it.
Give the eye a break
Some women would pleasantly choose to wear a monochromatic striped look. But, if you are going for the striped bottom with a striped top, the best would be if you choose a bare or printed (but not striped!), for example floral, footwear and handbag. That will give some break to the eye. Because styling stripes on stripes is one thing! But, wearing stripes on stripes on stripes in another dimension that believe us, you would not like to experiment with.
