How 5 Of Bustle's Editors Are Wearing Stripes This Spring

Layered rompers, sleek midi dresses, and linen fabrics are swiftly on the rise in New York, even if spring temps are taking their sweet time about it. In the Bustle offices especially, we're embracing the season's best trends with open arms. Not the sort to settle for anything less than "groundbreaking," we're bypassing spring florals in favor of their edgier counterparts: stripes.

In partnership with Abercrombie & Fitch, we're spotlighting stripes for spring, showing how five of our most stylish editors are wearing the trend themselves. Whether you aim for a polished edge or prefer a playful look, you're bound to get some spring style inspo from the below.

Jenna

Jenna's A&F style pick: Button Cropped Jumpsuit, $78, abercrombie.com.

Three words that describe your style right now: Mix-and-match, neutral, tailored.

Why did you pick this look? I love jumpsuits because they're so easy, but they still look polished.

How are you wearing the spring stripes trend right now? This piece will be great for summer as-is, but I can wear it just as well now with a jacket and sneaker or flat. I love this striped linen and like juxtaposing that with a little leather or denim layer. These platform sneakers also make me feel like a Spice Girl, so I get to live out my 3rd grade dreams. Win-win.

How else might you style this piece? This would be fun to dress up a bit with a simple heel. It could also be super cute with a white baby tee layered underneath.

Bry

Bry's A&F style pick: Linen Shirt, $58, abercrombie.com.

Three words that describe your style right now: Relaxed, light, and fun.

Why did you pick this look? I picked this look because it is easy and light for when the weather gets hotter. A button-up shirt automatically elevates your look without a lot of effort.

How are you wearing the spring stripes trend right now? I'm playing with stripes of different scales, from really small and subtle to oversized and exaggerated.

How else might you style this piece? I would wear this with shorts or pants and a jean jacket over the top.

Neelum

Neelum's A&F style pick: Chambray Button-Up Shirt, $48, abercrombie.com.

Three words that describe your style right now: Casual, on-trend, versatile.

Why did you pick this look? I love this top! It's totally in line with my style — it's super cute, relaxed, and can be worn with many different outfits. The top itself is comfy and light, and the cute tie-front detail elevates the look and adds a fun twist.

How are you wearing the spring stripes trend right now? In this outfit, I paired my striped top with fun, edgy Abercrombie cropped flares and espadrille sandals to dress it up and keep the look on trend.

How else might you style this piece? I would also style this top with a white jean skirt, jean jacket, and sneakers for a more casual look — or wide-leg jeans and platform sandals for a funky '70s-inspired look.

Elly

Elly's A&F style pick: Tie-Shoulder Romper, $58, abercrombie.com.

Three words that describe your style right now: Breezy, playful, and unfussy.

Why did you pick this look? If I can't think of three ways to wear a piece, I'll pass on it — New York closets are too small for that nonsense! This striped romper can be done so many ways, whether you wear a tee underneath for an everyday look or throw on some booties for a night out.

How are you wearing the spring stripes trend right now? I kept the stripes front and center by layering the romper with a bright white tee — really helping that print pop. Pink sneaks and fun fringe earrings keep the look colorful, which is always a must for me when springtime hits.

How else might you style this piece? I can't wait to pull this romper on over my swimsuits while on vacation for a more pulled-together look, or style it with espadrille wedges and layered necklaces for a dinner with friends.

Sierra

Sierra's A&F style pick: Button Front Midi Dress, $78, abercrombie.com.

Three words that describe your style right now: Effortless, cool, and fun!

Why did you pick this look? I absolutely love midi dresses for the spring — they're effortless and super comfortable, but they still give off a more elevated look.

How are you wearing the spring stripes trend right now? I chose this striped white midi dress because I loved the pop of blue color. To make sure the rest of my look didn't clash with the stripes, I paired the dress with some very casual, solid-colored sandals and dainty, gold jewelry that felt fun but not too over-the-top.

How else might you style this piece? I would definitely pair this dress with a denim jacket for chillier spring evenings. If I were going out for a nice dinner and wanted a less casual look, I'd throw on a pair of camel-colored mules.
