Sketching Stripes

From bloggers to local and international celebrities;
it is evident that fashion trends dictate one's way of dressing.
And during these past few days, we witnessed a classical trend which required people to go it's vertical and/or horizontal direction.
That's tight, i'm talking about the "Stripe Trend:"

Since it had become one of the biggest trend so far for this year, and I keep on seeing them worn by numerous people every time. I got inspired to sketch some designs incorporating stripes!

- So for the first look, I wanted to show that you can be sexy even if you're covered with fabrics.
The key element here has to be the top, for in here; I incorporated both diagonal and horizontal stripes for a mod feel. To make it more interesting, I would like to make the sleeves out of chiffon. I think giving it a bit of see-throughness would be dope. 
For a more sexier feel, I matched the top with a kin tight riding pants and heeled boots.

- For the second look, I decided to use cropped top and mini skirt.
In here, the stripes are thin, for a nautical feel; this is because I don't want this look to be grungy but more classy.

- For the 3rd look,
I drew a maxi skirt, and in order to make it more original; I added a sexy slit.

- And lastly, to set this look apart from the others; I decided to make a one-piece dress.
It's body hugging and see through. I also planned a strategy in order to cover up the areas that needs to be covered, which you can see on the illustration above.

That's all, folks!
Which one is your fave from this collection? :)
