Sure, solids are easy to wear, but we love breaking up blocks of solid color with patterns. Our favorite pattern to play with? Thin stripes, which feature a breezy nautical feel while remaining completely polished. Here’s how to add visual texture to an outfit of mostly solids:
1. Start with your basic solids: a lightweight hoodie in crisp white and a pair of grey denim jeans.
2. Add visual texture with a polished horizontal striped tee. Note how the black and white complement the soft white and grey tones in the rest of the outfit.
3. Finish off the look with a neutral colored messenger bag and a pair of retro-inspired sport sneakers. We’re digging the light blue sneakers juxtaposed against the tan of the bag.
