Out of all of the patterns, fabrics, and prints our Victoria Secret’s angel Alessandra Ambrosio wears, stripes seem to be one of the most consistent choices. Striped items are flattering because they can make certain areas of the body appear slimmer, but only if placed in the right areas. Although stripes aren’t a new trend, we can’t help but obsess over Ale’s abundant striped wardrobe. From cocktail dresses to casual cardigans, here is an Alessandra-inspired guide about the best ways to wear stripes this summer!
Over a Leather Skirt: This striped knit sweater and leather mini skirt combination is the perfect ensemble for a warm day. Pair it with sneakers for a casual look or dress it up with pumps for a night time occasion!
Crop It: Crop tops are musts for summer. This striped crop top paired with classic flared jeans will make a statement anywhere you go, especially if you want to show off your summer bod you’ve been working on!
With White Pants: A chic pair of white jeans and a striped button down are cute options for a day spent with family. Extra bonus points to Alessandra for looking fabulous while on #MomDuty!
Head-to-Toe White: Don’t get us wrong, we definitely love summer colors, but there is nothing wrong with this all-white outfit of Alessandra’s! The striped cardigan adds just enough style to this simple outfit for a stylish mommy look.
Dress it Up: Alessandra wore this gorgeous dress and strapless jumpsuit in Coast’s Summer Icons 2016 Campaign that are essential date night items. Try mixing it up by adding a printed bag to contrast the stripes!
