Add Stripes To Your Wardrobe

We’ve gone mad for STRIPES! Sure we already have a few classic striped tees in our closet, but this season we want to try something new and add a few more pieces to our growing collection. Why? Stripes instantly add a sense of fun to an outfit. A striped pattern is a nice blend between chic and quirky. And who couldn’t afford to add more fun to daily life?!

Over the last few years, designers have provided us with more and more striped goods. This Spring season is no exception. The popular trend continues. In fact, if you’ve gone as mad for stripes as we have, it is possible to wear stripes morning, noon, and night.

Wide stripes, narrow stripes, pinstripes, horizontal and vertical stripes…they’re online and in stores everywhere! You’ll even find a plethora of diagonal and chevron stripes. The variety of designs proves there is a flattering stripe for every body. The trick is to pay close attention to the overall fit of the garment and the placement of each stripe. Striped goods come in so many cheerful colors this season too! We can still wear the traditional nautical colors of navy/white or red/white, but with so many new colors available, it will be fun to experiment.

From the boardroom…to the ballroom…to the beach…to the bedroom, we’ve got you covered. Stripes are welcomed to most every event imaginable. Check out our ‘madness’ and see for yourselves! Which striped good do you find irresistible?
