Stripe Search

I have a legitimate obsession with stripes.  I cannot pass a rack of striped shirts or a cute little throw-n-go striped tunic without passing and contemplating its purchase.  They just never go out of style.  How cool are these artful striped shirt prints from various artists, including Maira Kalman ($50 each)?!

My favorites are these ones by Selima Salaun (top) and Maira Kalman (bottom):

Aren’t we inspired to throw on stripes now?!  For example, how cozy and chic is this simple raglan-style dress from Seaton Surf ($165)?!  I like it with loose, wavy hair and a boyish baseball hat from Ralph Lauren ($35):

 

 

I like it thrown over a little white bikini (Emamo, $225) —

 

 

— and finished with these darling Splendid t-straps ($62) and a classic LL Bean tote ($19+, depending on size):

 

 

Or, do you not love this striped maxi from Mara Hoffmann ($253)?!

I like it with tortoise Karen Walker shades (the “Deep Freeze” style is quickly earning icon status — $220), those Rachel Zoe Gladys sandals I’ve been drooling over this season ($235), and a lived-in brown leather tote by Clare Vivier ($392):

Or, this simple lovely by Edith Miller (love those pockets!!! — on sale for $136 — but also available in navy at the full price here) with some classic Ray-Bans ($150):

I like it with some worn in boat-shoes ($75) — the ones below are by up and coming Cali-based footwear line Bed Stu, but the ultimate classics hail from Sperry.

I’d finish with a simple canvas tote by Chance ($150):

Don’t forget your beach towel/wrap ($40):

Or, why not wear a classic LWD by Built By Wendy (on sale for $124) with a bold statement necklace ($92)?!

 

Juge it up with a striped bucket tote ($224) and these fun star-studded sandals by Loeffler Randall ($175):

Other cute add-ons?  These fun nautical bangles by Elizabeth Yarborough ($53-$67 — AND check out her bomb.com neon collection!) or this Lem-Lem scarfski ($125) or these MyMu espadrilles ($185):

 

 

Finally, this slouchy canvas tote ($63) is just the ticket for summer beach combing:

You might also check out Splendid and Rachel Pally for additional easy striped cotton pieces.  This Soft Joie number ($124) has been on my covet list for the last week or two, but it appears to be sold out in my size everywhere!  BOO.  But — no worries.  Net-A-Porter’s END-OF-SEASON sale is raging, and I may have already had to snap these puppies up.  Happy shopping!
