A striped skirt is one of the easiest ways to give your wardrobe an upgrade for spring. While you can certainly pick a classic navy and white skirt, you can also have some fun with colors. When choosing a blouse, pick one that matches just one of the colors in the skirt. It's that easy to get a fabulous outfit!

A striped top is an absolute must! When shopping for one, look for a shirt with vertical stripes rather than horizontal. This will create the illusion of having an even longer torso. Now that's a styling trick we love! Pair it with jeans, your favorite solid skirt or white shorts.

A jumpsuit is arguably one of the easiest items of clothing you'll ever own. Throw it on and you're ready to go! Plus, it always look trendy. When selecting a striped jumpsuit, keep the same rule in mind for tops and look for vertical stripes. Who doesn't want the appearance of longer legs?
