Style Advice of the Week

Now that we are free of finals and all of the stress that is college life, days of relaxation and achieving the perfect tan lie ahead. Of course, in this day and age, there is no such thing as a totally idle summer. Many of us will take on a challenging internship, job or volunteer work—and we intend to look good doing it. When you shop for whichever fabulous experience this summer has in store for you, look for striped pieces to spice up your wardrobe. While other trends have come and gone under the summer sun, stripes are here to stay.

The Fashionista shown here wears bold black and white stripes on top with rolled cuff jean shorts. She wears a delicate coral watch that adds a feminine touch which draws the eye to her accessories. Sperry Top-Siders complete the preppy chic outfit, and a dainty silver necklace contrasts the vivid stripes. This Fashionista shows us how classic black and white can be a fresh and modern summer look with the help of stripes.

You can earn your stripes this summer with anything from a nautical blue and white striped three-quarter sleeved blouse, to a thinly striped crop top. These pieces will soon become an integral part of your summer wardrobe. When wearing stripes, let this piece speak the loudest, and keep the rest of your look delicate and refined as this Fashionista did. As for some of the ways to wear them, you can choose stripes to add some kick in an otherwise solid colored outfit. Thick or thin, black and white or crazy colorful, you can find stripes in any form. Whichever form of stripes you choose, they’ll be the perfect summer piece. In fact, they’ll be just stripe for the season.
