When it comes to fashion, I rarely follow the trends. That being said, however, there are a few trends that I find myself coming back to each time I see them pop-up in stores. This summer, stripes are the “hot new trend” and I am completely loving them for my summer wardrobe!
Stripes go in and out of style but they have become more of a classic go-to look due to their timeless nature and affiliation with summer and all things nautical. It seems to me as though everywhere I look this summer, stripes are out in abundance and every variation is a good one!
One of the best things about stripes (aside from them being easy to pair with and the color variations they allow) is their affiliation with class. From my interview with Lindsay Shores of Paris, Meet Boston – I learned that striped shirts are a classic French style staple and I cannot help but make the connection between French elegance and a classic striped cotton shirt.
The variety of stripes is nothing to laugh at. Look no further than your local mall and you’ll find striped clothing in every width, orientation (vertical, horizontal) and color! My favorite just so happens to be the thinner navy blue and white stripes but I have also started taking a liking towards light pink ones as well.
