You'd think I'm obsessed with stripes or something, which is funny because up until a couple of years ago, I avoided stripes at all costs. People would tell me "bigger women shouldn't wear stripes because it makes them look wider," or "They aren't flattering for your figure." And I believed them, just like so many other curvy women who still stay away from stripes.  However, the pattern has been making a huge statement in fashion recently, and I am living for all of it. If you hate the stripy posts, you may want to stay away for a while, because this won't be the last time you'll see them on this blog!

I might have a thing for striped pants. They are so bold, fun, and give any look an adventurous and chic feel. I love how the vertical stripes also elongate my short little legs. These Jazmine Stripe Pants are so cute, and I love the colors. When I wear stripes I try to stick to a monochromatic looks so that the outfit isn't too busy. But I made an exception for these muted earth and navy tones because they add a new color palette to my closet without being too overpowering or busy. Since summer is starting to show itself, I paired the pants with this fun and sexy Vikkie Ruffle Top from Fashion Nova Curve. This look will definitely be on rotation this summer. I topped off the look with my green circle bag that I got from Zara a couple of months ago. If you are obsessed with stripe pants, too, I included striped pants of all colors in the shop widget below! Just click the arrows to browse through and find your perfect pair. If you love this look, you can get it 20% off with the code: natinthecity.

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2X in the Jazmine Stripe Pants, which is my usual size, and the pants fit perfectly. The pants do not stretch at all. So if you are looking for a more comfortable fit, then I would size up to get a looser fit. I am wearing a size 3X in the Vikki Ruffle Top, which is a size larger than my usual, and it fits nicely. This top runs true to size, but I ordered a size larger because I didn't know it was a crop top. Whoops!
