Why You Should Show Your Stripes This Summer (and Straight Through Fall)
Technically, stripes are always in fashion. But it’s summer when those lines offer the biggest oomph. Of course, not all stripes are created equal. Whether it comes down to width, color or pattern. (We’re actually pretty flexible when it’s warm out.) So we rounded up the best pieces to flaunt summer stripes in style.
We’re so obsessed that we’re embracing all amounts. From a pair designed to make a statement to all-over prints, everything’s on the table. You should also make room in your summer wardrobe for both the horizontal and vertical varieties. Another must? Vibrant colors. You can still favor nautical takes or pinstripes, but now’s the time to go bright and bold.
Matching sets are pretty popular. But if you don’t feel like rocking stripes all over, feel free to break up the sets. Or sport a striped dress with dad sandals. You can also pair a button-down with cutoffs. Tunics and pants make great cover-ups. Go ahead and keep these pieces in your lineup come fall. All it takes is a little layering expertise. Which our regular readers have in spades by now.
