STRIPE savvy

With an eye towards spring, stripes are sailing the horizon.   Somewhat expected, as it is a classic warm weather welcome mat look, the French-inspired style is showing up everywhere.  What's more, it's divinely chic and surprisingly easy to wear.  With a little style strategy, stripes can accentuate your assests and camouflage any self-perceived flaws.

One of my all time favorite ways to wear this classic look is via a boatneck bracelet length sleeve tee paired with dark capris, a great pair of ballet flats and a favorite jacket casually draped over the shoulders.  If you're picturing Audrey Hepburn here and her timeless effortless chic, you've got it.

Other ways to wear it?  Try tossing on a brilliant beret or fresh pop of color on your feet.   A little bit of accessorizing goes a long way towards pulling things altogether.  Need a little more feminine flair?  A striped skirt is certain to give you all the versatility you want with multi ways to pair it.  Keep it classic with a matching black or white cardi or blouse.  Or, punch up the playfulness by opting for a bright cobalt blue or deep pink top to offset the classic contrast.  Anyway you decide to style them, stripes will make you smile.

Have a beautiful Monday everyone!
