There are many ways to wear stripes. As you can see above, they can be dressy, like Solange's suit, or they can be a fun part of a more casual ensemble -- like actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's loose top.

Whether vertical or horizontal, they can create visual interest. That said, you've gotta be careful and make sure that the direction of the pattern flatters your shape, because stripes can accentuate problem areas.

Regardless, stripes are totally in.


Beyonce's baby sis has an edgier and more daring sense of fashion, and here she suits up in black and white vertical stripes in menswear-inspired attired with matching sunglasses. This is the dressier side of stripes, and you have to be careful to avoid a costumey look.

She was the epitome of effortless airport chic, thanks to her tan suede booties and gray structured bag. Most women can copy this look and live to tell about it -- it works since the accessories aren't monochromatic.
