Bloggers Do B&W Stripes Better

This is Bloggers Do It Better. Unfamiliar? Catch up here!

Are you ready for a dizzying conglomeration of black and white stripes? Fashion world, prepare yourselves, because this is how bloggers do black and white stripes better! Nobody was more amazed than I when the Spring/Summer ’13 collections churned out endless amounts of the monochromatic pattern formerly reserved for inmates. I have always had a fondness for stripes, often pulling on a Breton-striped shirt and jeans and calling it a day. But this season was different. We saw bold, thick, statement-making swashes of black and white. There’s nothing delicate about this trend. And if loving the indelicate is wrong, I don’t want to be right. Click below to see the full link-up of bloggers wearing Spring’s hottest trend!

Tip: click “Crop first” when given the option. The most eye-catching photos (which will get you more views) are the ones that are closer up, like a detail shot. Frame your crop so that it’s properly displaying the challenge trend. And remember, to avoid deletion, only enter your blog’s name (not your own)!

    I love this theme, too! 🙂 It’s my 2nd time join but instead of my blog’s name, which is Brands for Grabs, I keyed in my name. Waaa.. if you could edit it, I’d appreciate it. 🙂 Thanks much!

    You changed your thumbnail. I have your site bookmarked and I could not find the pink sparkly heart. I’m like “where did it go?” I’ll have to subscribe via e-mail to make sure I don’t miss a post. T

      You can still find it! It’s now a P. 🙂 I found lots of sites were copying the whole heart thing so I decided to make a favicon that was more in line with my design 🙂 sorry for the change-up!
