When it comes to prints for Spring and Summer one always comes to mind, and it's florals. As Miranda Priestly would say: "Florals for Spring? GROUNDBREAKING." While I love a good floral almost any time of year, this year it seems that stripes are actually taking the spotlight. They've been popping up on everything from statement tops to wide leg trousers, and it seems every it-girl is rocking a stripe in one way or another. My personal favorite way to rock a stripe this season? A blue pinstripe, and I'm digging it on tops as well as bottoms, or accessories! There's something preppy and pulled together about the classic print that can go with so much. It also has the tendency to class up a pair of ripped jeans. Below see two of my favorite ways to rock this pattern, and shop some of my faves!
1) A statement top:
Statement tops are everywhere, and I can't help but gravitate to them every time I see them in a stripe. Here I'm wearing this fabulous off the shoulder flare-sleeved version from Azalea SF which goes great with anything from a skinny jean, to a wide legged pant, to a suede mini like I'm wearing here from AG Jeans. (Quite possibly my favorite thing in my closet right now, btw. It's such a stunning piece!)
2) A high waisted short:
Stripes are notoriously tricky on the body but these are flattering since they're small and vertically placed. Put a pinstripe on a high waisted short or jean and it's bound to be magic. I love the blue and white on these and they're so fun to play around with for Summer. I've worn them with a pussy bow blouse here, but they'd also be great with a bodysuit or simple tee and sandal. The ones I'm wearing here are the Juliette short from AG Jeans.
3) A striped mini bucket bag:
Nothing says "Oui Oui" like a striped mini bucket bag with fringe. I've been wearing this little guy with everything and I love the pin stripe to give it a little fun flare. Every time I use it I have to ask myself: "Am I French yet?" Unfortunately, no, but at least I can dress like I am ;).
