You can use stripes and keep it very very discrete. In your accessories for example! Here you have the trend in the hat and the bag. Plus, look how hot mixing bold colours with b&w stripes work? You can't go wrong during your summer days.
Stripes are very hot right now! I dare to say they're THE TREND for this summer but, there is many ways of combining your b&w stripes. One of them is having your bets on a single piece or accessory, in this case, shoes and mix and match with other patterns. As long as you keep everything in the same colour scheme you should be okay. :)
