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) —
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):
I’d finish with a simple canvas tote by Chance ($150):
Don’t forget your beach towel/wrap ($40):
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!
