Striped denim with a twist

If you follow me on twitter you probably know this weekend wasn't so much fun. I don't know if I should believe that was due to Friday the 13Th or just coincidence. But anyway,  between the rain and cleaning up broken glass, I was able to go out a bit yesterday in the evening. 
You have probably noticed that a lot of online stores are stocked with black and white stripes. If you follow celebrities news on Rihanna or Jessie J, you would have seen images where they were wearing the black and white stripes on different occasions. I love them both and decided to try styling these stripes myself. I didn't really want to get jeans in this design because I wasn't sure I would like it and didn't want to have wasted money on that, so when I found these leggings I was absolutely delighted. At the time, I wasn't sure how to wear striped leggings but as with all items, you try it out and see how it goes.
There are quite a number of ways I have thought of to wear these leggings, but it being a little bit cold yesterday, I decided to go with this look.

       I decided to mix black and white stripes with blue and denim. Because the blue I am wearing is light, this makes it look a bit boring. So I added my red and fuchsia color-block cross-body bag to add a pop of color.
