Stripes, Stripes, Stripes!

One of the biggest trends for spring this year is stripes, and I could not be more excited. I have a long-time love affair with stripes. Seriously, they call to me - I spot a striped shirt from across the store and I will make a bee-line for it. There are some to-die-for fashion options with stripes about to hit the shelves - take a look!

First of all, I DIE for these shoes. They are so perfectly nautical with a high-style edge to them. Paired with a white knee-length pleated skirt, they would be perfect for sailing on a yacht come summer! Also loving the sailor-take on the fedora from Eugenia Kim.

A few options on dressing stripes up or down. Add a pop of color to the navy stripes and pant combo, or a jean jacket and flouncy skirt to make the stripes a little more girly.

Although I am a little partial to navy and white stripes, colored stripes make for a playful outfit. Love the spring-y, candy-colored brightness of the Tara Matthews scarf and Kate Spade bracelet, and wouldn't the Diane von Furstenberg tote make a perfect beach bag?

More lovely and casual striped options for spring! A crisp white pant looks so fabulous with tall heels and bright red stripes. So much stripe-inspiration - time to get to shopping and outfit planning for spring! xoxo
