STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Stripes Done Right!

‘Tis the season for shorts, sandals, and stripes and when I came across these two Fashionistas, I couldn’t help but admire the nautical striped shirts that they donned.  Stripes have been around for centuries, yet they never seem to get old, and always find a way to be reinvented into modern-day trends. These nautical tees are accessorized beautifully and are a perfect example of how to wear a simple tee like this without making ones appearance look dull.

From personal observations upon recently attending the very popular First Friday art festivals held here every month in down town Phoenix, I noticed that the reappearance of stripes in today’s fashion did not only apply to women, but I spotted many men rocking the striped tee as well. With the striped tee being highly sought-after, I predict that this summer trend will lengthen its stay till the fall and maybe even winter… that is if accessorized properly.

With that said it seems like even major celeb from Sienna Miller to Ashley Olsen have been photographed sporting this chic tee, so it’s only natural to incorporate such a great piece into your summer attire. For an inexpensive option check out this dolman top, it is very similar to the one that these Fashionistas model above. Its absolutely perfect for a daytime festival to a night out on the town, and can easily be dressed up with a simple piece of statement jewelry, or can pop with a boyfriend blazer. Nonetheless, I feel like this top is a summer must!
