It’s March, a new month and time for my next fashion challenge.
Ready to elevate your street style this month?!?! The March Challenge is to try the popular side-stripe trend!
I know, I know, trying a new trend can be a bit scary, especially if you live in a part of the country that is 2 years behind the major fashion capitals of the world. That’s why it’s called, a Challenge. Good news is, the trend has been around a while and you are probably starting to see it more frequntly out on the street. Here are a few tips to overcome any excuses so you can succeed at the March Challenge.
First, the side-stripe trend can be worn a few different ways, so you can find a style that you are most comfortable wearing. You can wear pants, a dress, or shirt with a basic side-stripe depending on your own personal style.
Second, before you put down some serious cash on a trend that might be out in a few months, hit up your local resale shop, or retail store like Forever 21 which stocks the latest trends at prices that cannot be beat.
I found this amazing slim fit mid length dress with a side-stripe down the arm at my local resale shop, Plato’s Closet for just $2. It’s a total win which allows me to try the popular runway trend without breaking the bank.
Third, ask a friend to join you in the challenge. You won’t feel like a stand alone. Maybe your friends secretly wants to try something new as well. There is power in numbers.
There you have it, your March Fashion Challenge! Side-stripes are in try the trend!
