trend watch: SEEING STRIPES

Okay, so this is not a new trend but it is definitely not going away either.  From striped tanks and t-shirts all the way to dresses, stripes are here to stay!  So here are a few fun (and well priced) suggestions for incorporating this look into your wardrobe...


A great t-shirt can go a long way!  Jennifer Garner knows that a great striped t-shirt can keep you looking cute even when you've got an active day!  Get a bright summer striped t-shirt at Badjoan.com with the Shagg I Did It My Way t-shirt available in Orange or Pink.  This super soft t-shirt is a flattering and comfortable fit and goes with anything and everything!


Black and white is always a good choice when it comes to stripes!  Stephanie Pratt keeps it simple yet fabulous in a black and white stripe dress.  You can get a similar look with a couple choices from Rails.  The Dolman Tunic/Dress is a long loose piece that can be worn alone as a dress or over leggings or even belted over jeans.  The Dolman Top with Tie comes with its own sash and looks great with any bottoms!  Both pieces are extremely soft and comfortable and oversize.


It is important to finish off your stripes with the right touch.  Leighton Meester shows us that an adorable solid blazer can be the perfect finishing touch to a striped top.  We suggest pairing the James 213 Racerback Tank with the Rails Crop Blazer.  This adorable pairing can go with jeans, shorts or a skirt and is perfect for a casual outing with friends!
