Inspired By Janelle Monae’s Black & White Stripe Style


Sydne Style shows how to wear mixed prints with black and white stripes Janelle Monae has a thing for black and white outfits, especially striped pants. She’s paired black and white striped pants with everything from solid tops to mixed prints. Most recently, she showed off a very high fashion look by wearing a Christian Siriano striped crop top with striped pants at the the CFDA Awards.

I originally was going to pair my striped pants with a black top but Janelle Monae inspired me to be more daring. So instead, I brought out an old crop top and mixed my stripes. I used the lines to my advantage: vertical stripes make you look taller while the horizontal stripe of my top helps widen a smaller chest. Then instead of a bright red lip, I added a pop of color with my clutch.

What do you think about mixing stripes?
