Omiru Poll Results: Striped Tops are On the Way Out

Omiru Poll Result: Striped Tops are On the Way Out

Omiru Poll Result: Striped Tops are On the Way OutWe asked: Are Striped Tops In or Out?

You said: You’re getting tired of the whole Striped Tops theme.  A slight majority (59%) voted them Out or On the Way Out.  Then again, 41% are still behind this classic pattern.

Omiru’s take:
Striped Tops are vanilla.  They’re boring.  They’re everywhere.  And while they’re a part of almost every wardrobe, we don’t think that they deserve to be placed front and center.  We like the idea of Striped Tops, but we would rather place the focal point of your outfit elsewhere.  Perhaps a fun accessory, a stunning coat, or a great skirt that shows off a little leg (despite the falling temperatures).  Same goes for men…minus the flirty skirt!

Next Question: Has casualwear taken over the workplace, or is there still room for fine tailoring by the watercooler?   Tell us, are Suits for Work In, or are they Out?  Cast your
vote on the sidebar!

Leather Girl Ring

Leather Girl Ring Traditional meets modern in this leather-gold cocktail ring.  Says designer Rickina Velte: "I like to always create pieces that are unexpected, and evoke an emotion, in most cases curiosity and happiness."

Rickina suggests pairing the ring with a wildly colorful top, flattering jeans, and black boots.  Or, she suggests, you can funk it up a bit and wear an ultra mini skirt, colorful leggings, ballerina flats, and a simple top.

Fun fact about Rickina?  She’s a total Racer chick.  Her alter ego, Rexy, drives a 2002 Subaru WRX and enjoys racing and showing up guys in their slow street compact cars!

$48 at Spipo.
