Each season, fashion enthusiasts proclaim that stripes are back (!!), when in all reality- they never really leave. Stripes can add a crisp, classic element to any look, and even though they are popular season after season- they always look fresh. We love incorporating stripes into our wardrobe- whether we’re out running errands or dressing up for a fun & fancy soiree!

For a casual, daytime look- pair a striped top with shorts, strappy sandals, and a cross body bag. This top from J.Crew is great because it has a little burst of color- so it doesn’t come across too casual. With a bold top like this, you should keep your accessories basic (we’re personally loving this dainty initial necklace). If you’re heading out for a night on the town- we suggest diving into the world of print mixing. You don’t have to go overboard to achieve a maximum impact look. A striped dress + floral heels is a small-scale way to mix it up yet still be fashion forward! We’re curious- which look do you love most??
