How to Style: Stripes

May 3, 2012

Loving stripes just got easier – there are so many chic options out there that getting your stripe fix doesn’t have to be limited to a standard boat-neck top anymore.  Madewell and J Crew are just two of the stores putting out gorgeous striped options for summer, and the dress and shirt below were two of my favorites.  Throw on the dress with a jean jacket (they’re making their comeback!) and a pair of leather sandals for an easy weekend brunch look.  Dress it up a bit more for night with the high-neck bow top, some jeans to make your legs look miles long, and some luxe accessories!

    A post about stripes after my addicts post – are you trying to entice me Lauren?!

    • Lauren {Stylized Existence}

      Yes! I totally am. I’m that friend that you can’t be around after you’ve gone through the 12 step program.

    I want every single item! My stripe addiction has become out of control lately. As of Tuesday it has grown to the walls in my house too…oops.

    Both great outfits! I’m such a huge fan of pops of stripes and pops of colors – okay, just pops of anything really!

  • Audrey @ Putting Me Together

    I love both of these looks, Lauren! I’m always a fan of stripes, and of a dress with a denim jacket. And that top you chose is CUTE!
