How to Transition The Striped Maxi into Fall

Tuesday October 5, 2010 by Hafsa

Striped maxis made their debut on the streets this past summer, and celebrities like J-Lo, Rihanna, Paris Hilton, Gwen Stefani and Khloe Kardashian were quick to pick up on the trend.


We saw stripes in every cut and colour, though simple black & whites proved most versatile.

Forever 21 Striped Sleeveless Maxi ($23.80), Zara Wool Dress with XL Stripes ($69.90), Rachel Pally Santa Monica Midnight White (US$246), Full Tilt Stripe Maxi (US$18.99)

Did you follow suit?  Carry this summery look into Fall by adding a belt, scarf or a long necklace to accessorize and to break up the stripes.  Throw on some clunky lace-up wedges or boots, and you’ll be a walking representation of the grunge-vintage trend as well!

Will you wear the Striped Maxi in Fall?

I have not seen men wearing this but shudder at the thought. However, there are probably some who could have the moxie to pull it off - I don't want to generalize!

I agree with Ali. I'm over 5'5" and unfortunately also over 130lbs so stripes would give me a wider look, something I don't need!

I've noticed guys sporting this trend also. What do you all think about that?

This looks so hot on them, but I'm not sure I have the fashion sense to pull it off.

I agree! Would love to pull this one off but fear I'm a little too short to do it with panache.

Though I love the look of the maxi it's hard to pull off for anyone under 5"5 (or over 130lbs). This stripey business presents an additional challenge as it will make you look bigger. Looks great on them, though!
