One trend that has unexpectedly caught my eye this summer is multi colored stripes! I love how much color they add to an outfit without being as overt as say a bright Lilly shift. Plus, they make me feel like Rainbow Bright which is always a plus in my book! (Did anyone else love that cartoon growing up?) Here are some of my favorites -
Ric Rac Dress - I love ric rac, and that with the stripes makes this dress extra fun. Plus it's under $130.
Tassel Hoops - I love the mixed of the tassels (which I think look like stripes) and stones. Plus, it combines my other favorite summer trend - statement earrings - with the rainbow stripes.
Floral Hoops - These aren't technically stripes, but they are multi colored and amazing! Plus, I picked them up in the store and they aren't too heavy.
Striped Dress - I recently fell in love with maxi dresses, and I think the long wide stripes make this number just dreamy. Plus, it's under $60 and can be dressed up with heels or down with sneakers.
Striped Dolman Sleeve Top - I got this top during the J.Crew 20% off sale and I love it! It is so soft and dreamy. As to sizing, it runs a little big, so I would size down.
Sandals - These are just too fun!
Collared Shirt - Madewell, you did it again. I love how they always have classic pieces with a little bit of a twist, like this collared shirt. I really like this striped dress too, it's lovely for summer.
Socks - Okay, so these aren't stripes. But how cute are rainbow pineapples?
Sweatshirt - This sweatshirt is oversized, which makes it the perfect piece to wear with everything when you are cold. The rainbow makes it match everything too.
