STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Stripe Sensation

In case you haven’t noticed, stripes have made a huge comeback this summer season and there are more than enough variations to go around. Whether you’re into bold, loud stripes or swear by the mantra “less is more,” take advantage of this classic yet versatile trend by tailoring it to meet your personal preferences.

I found this sweet Fashionista by a park in downtown Portland. Her combination of a bandeau top, striped dress paired with a lightweight pastel blazer immediately caught my eye. Not only does it work well for daytime attire, but trade the flip flops for wedges and shed the blazer altogether for an instant transition to a summer evening look.

There are just so many ways to play with stripes. During the summer I practically live in dresses, so something like this or this would be perfect for date night or for going out with the girls. Of course, I’m also known for my obsession with cute and comfortable lounge wear which is why this lightweight pullover sweater immediately made the top of my list. Don’t sacrifice style for comfort during those warm evenings spent taking summer classes though. I know I’d rather be out on a boat somewhere, but why not pair some sassy high-waisted shorts with a crop top or simple cami for a more stylish classroom appearance? And in reality, I’m actually quite jealous of the fearless Fashionista who can effortlessly rock a pair of sexy cutout¬†leggings¬†no matter the occasion.

I know prints and colors are all the rage right now, but let’s face it: stripes are never going out of style!
