There’s something so crisp and nautical about stripes that I just can’t resist for my summertime essentials.  I’m loving stripe bangles, tunics, maxi dresses, tops and more!!  When wearing stripes keep in mind these rules.

-Look for pieces that defines and accentuate your shape

-Match the size of the stripe to the size of your frame such as small frame is a small stripe, medium frame is a medium stripe and so forth

-Horizontal stripes add volume so keep in mind how you wear it, if you want to add curves to your hips wear a striped skirt, if you want to add to your bust wear a striped top.

-If you want to elongate wear vertical stripes

What’s your favorite summer pattern this season?
