Stars are simply eating up the black and white stripe trend. While I prefer my stripes to be a little more subtle, everyone from Nelly Furtado to Lindsay Lohan and Gwen Stefani are strutting their stuff, referee style.

Out of all three of these ensembles, I think that I love Nelly Furtado's geometrical tube dress the best. Bold stripes like these are usually hard to pull off (for example, if you don't have a rockin' bod like Gwen Stefani, her single sleeve striped dress wouldn't be so flattering). Nelly's tube dress is bold, but not over the top and would be fun to wear on a Saturday night. While I'm also not too crazy about Lindsay Lohan's belly baring sequined stripe top, I think that if you are going to do this trend, a top is the way to do it.

If you want to go for an edgy black and white stripe look, then try the Rock the Mic top from Kahri. Cute with skinny jeans and flats or a pencil skirt and stiletto's, this is the perfect way to marry Gwen Stefani quirk with trendy fashion.

Rock the Mic Cropped Top from Kahri, $70.00

What do you think about the black and white stripe trend? Is it too much on a formal dress, or too cute?
