DO'S AND DON'TS: STRIPED SHIRTS


Today we will tackle a preppy essential: striped shirts. Although striped shirts are super cute they are only cute when worn right. Here are a few of our do's and don'ts to ensure you know your way around stripes:

Do:
Invest in a couple of well made striped shirts you love. You will get a TON of wear and tear out of them (believe us). They can take a simple outfit from drab to fab!

Don't: 
Wear vertical stripes (with the exception of a vertical striped button down). This should be a given, but seriously. Don't do it. It's not flattering on anybody.

Do: 
Keep it simple. You don't want to mix too many patterns in or it could cause the outfit to clash.

Don't:
Wear multiple stripes in one outfit. Even if it is the same kind and color of stripes it looks tacky.

Thanks so much for reading! Check back later this week to see how we style our striped shirts! We have linked some of our favorites below! 

Striped Shirts: 

Splurge.
Steal.

Welcome to MInniebelle!

Hey y’all! It’s Isabel and Minnie! Welcome to Minniebelle. This is our first post so we thought we should let y’all know a little bit about ourselves:

We became friends in 6th grade, and even though we don't go to highschool together we are still best friends today and hopefully this blog will be a way to stay connected and share our ideas with y’all.
Our style tends to lean on the more classic and preppy side.
We are both perfectionists.

About Isabel:
  • I am a dancer and I take ballet and jazz classes.
  • Some of my other hobbies are art, photography, and sewing.
  • My favorite color is fuchsia.
  • I’m interested in fashion design, particularly for children.
  • I love chocolate.
  • I also love interior design and architecture.

About Minnie
  • I run cross country and take horseback riding lessons.
  • Some of my other hobbies are photography, sewing, and crafting.
  • My favorite colors are pink and blue.
  • I love anything monogrammed.
  • I have a Lilly Pulitzer obsession.
