Stripe A Pose

28 May

When I think of stripes I instantly think of old prison uniforms, sailors and over the top preppy folk on the Cape. One thing is for certain – this Summer stripes are hip. If you don’t have dresses, shirts and even bags donned with stripes, you’re a step behind. One great thing about this trend is that stripes can be casual, professional and fun. Look around and you’ll find great pieces for day or night at a range of prices. What are some musts?

A maxi dress – so super comfy – try this one from Ella Moss. For something more fitting, I like this one from Reiss

A fun work blouse – something bright and color-blocked – Zara has some cute options

Take anywhere tote – practical and fashionable – this one from Anthropologie is a best bet. For something more beachy, try this design from J. Crew

A light-weight scarf – can be worn around the neck, in your hair or tied onto your bag – I like this one from Banana Republic

A striped sweater – perfect for work or play and looks great with white pants – Milly’s bateau-neck design is classic

A fancy dress skirt – something that makes you want to twirl around and drink tea – this Kate Spade design fits the bill

A stripy sandal – a great accent for a simple outfit – Kate Spade’s nautical inspired espadrille is the perfect weekend go-to

Bathing suit – don’t be afraid – stripes won’t make you look bigger than you are, at least not on a bikini. I love this one from J Crew

Short and sweet dresses – I love easy summer dresses – this mod design takes stripes to a new level. For something a little more delicate, try this one from White House Black Market. Looking for easy? This cotton number from Urban Outfitters is as easy as it gets

A throw-on and go skirt – perfect with a basic tee or tank – I’m going to buy this one from Old Navy

A beach hat – something feminine and carefree – like this one from the Gap

I am clearly inspired! Time for me to go add some stripes to my closet. If you’re shopping around Boston pop into Intermix, Saks, Zara, Wish or Gap for some great finds.
