Sometimes clothes can be like a party, you know it’s good manners to arrive early and start building the party mood from zero, but deep down we all convinced that the best part comes late at night. After being betrayed by Barcelona’s weather, these outfits were left behind hanging in my rack and I honestly didn’t want to lose the chance of wearing them, so I played dressing up at home. I was late to the party, but that doesn’t mean I won’t have a good time.Luckily there are things to where if you arrive late it’s fine, and one of those is one of the classiest trends ever: stripes. It doesn’t matter in which decade you’re in, location or your style situation, stripes can’t go wrong. Algunas veces la ropa puede parecerse a una fiesta, sabemos que es de buena educación llegar temprano y comenzar a construir el ambiente desde cero, pero muy en el fondo tenemos claro que lo mejor viene muy tarde en la noche. Después de haber sido traicionada por el clima en Barcelona, estos atuendos se quedaron colgados en mi perchero y no quería perder la oportunidad de usarlos, así que jugué un poco a vestirme en casa. Llegué tarde a la fiesta pero eso no quiere decir que no pueda disfrutarla.Por suerte hay cosas en las que si llegas tarde no pasa nada, y una de las tendencias más clásicas de todas son las rayas, no importa en qué década te encuentres, lugar y situación de estilo, las rayas no fallan.

I personally like stripes to create visual interest where there isn’t one, like on a simple outfit with solid colors, but this time I wanted to make something different and bolder achieving combinations with different prints and scales. The importance that fabric textures play in any outfit is crucial, and with stripes you need a solid color as an auxiliary. Some people are afraid of stripes because they feel it will make them look wider, but actually if you find a good loose fit on a dress or blouse it won’t make you look anything but chic, and it will also help to dissimulate those little spots you don’t want to show. As with any trend, we always need to find the ideal balance for us, if you haven’t still found your ideal striped garment I invite you to do so, because let me tell you, they’re going nowhere. Personalmente me gustan para crear interés visual donde no lo hay, como en un atuendo sencillo de colores sólidos, esta vez quise hacer algo diferente buscando un poco más allá y lograr combinaciones con diferentes estampados y escalas. La importancia que juegan las texturas en las telas es crucial para cualquier atuendo y con las rayas se necesita un color sólido como auxiliar. Algunas personas les temen porque sienten que lucirán más anchas, pero la verdad es que si encuentras la caída ideal de un vestido o blusa rayada no hay nada que temer, al contrario, ayudará a disimular lo que no quieres mostrar. Como cualquier tendencia, siempre hay que buscarle el lado que nos favorece, y si todavía no encuentras una prenda de rayas que te favorezca te invito a que lo hagas, porque déjame decirte, no van a irse a ningún lado.
