Fall horizontal stripes

stripes for fall bay area fashion bloggerjw anderson pierce bag san francisco style blogger casual fall outfit idea

Wearing: gold sculptured earrings / Chanel sunglasses / MAC lipstick / striped fall blouse / dark wash flare jeans / sculptured gold ring / Chanel Gris Obscur nail polish / JW Anderson Pierce bag / black boots (old, love this pair under $200)

Horizontal stripes have always been a pattern I have been drawn to, so when they appeared as a strong trend for the spring 2017 season, (see spring 2017 trends from the runway online here), I was really excited! This short sleeve blouse with horizontal stripes for the fall 2016 season, instantly caught my eye; not because it is a spring trend, but because I loved the stripes pattern and silhouette!

Our weather during the fall season in the San Francisco Bay Area is mild. Temperatures swing between eighty degrees and sixty degrees, so a short sleeve top with jeans on casual days is perfect. If the fog rolls in, simply top the look with a lightweight jacket, and you are ready to take on the fall weather! Love that!

I love how this top has a swing silhouette which is reminiscent of the 1960s, and a colorful pattern with a 1980s vibe. This season is all about transitioning from a strong 1970s vibe, to a mixture of 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s influence; so this mix is a great way to go from fall 2016 into the new year. In the spring season, the 1980s will rise to become a more important influence then the 1970s on fashion and style. Start thinking ahead when you shop for next year!

When the spring season hits, I am looking forward to wearing different type of horizontal stripes. What is your take on the emerging trend?

    Awww Cathy, your daughter did a great job with these photos. We have been having mild temps here in the Midwest. I love wearing stripes any season and orange for Fall. Dying over your bag and fun top. I love that this Fall, style has elements of the 60s, 70s, 80s & 90s all transformed into 2016!
