I’d hoped to get out a bit more this weekend to see what’s starting to hit the stores for Spring, but our weekend childcare fell through at the last minute, so my trips were short and focused. But one thing definitely stood out…
Stripes aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. While variations of the classic boatneck Breton style remain widely available, new colors, cuts and patterns have joined the mix. V-necks, cropped cuts, short sleeves, wide or narrow or irregular stripes…you can find just about any iteration right now.
Cardigans and jackets are getting in on the stripe action too. I particularly like this one above from Eileen Fisher, with a solid v-neck front which mitigates the “OMG Horizontal Stripe” terror just a bit. It’s swingy even when buttoned and a travel-friendly combination of soft/lightweight/washable.
Even print-averse types like me find that stripes can add some pep and life to solid basics, and for the more adventurous, they’re easy to mix with many other prints like florals and leopard. If you’re still hesitant to wear horizontal stripes, try a narrow stripe top or tee underneath a jacket or cardigan, or opt for a diagonal or vertical stripe pattern.
How do you wear stripes?
