Saturday is National Stripes Day! What is national stripes day you ask? It is a made up holiday that J. Crew came up with. And since I am all for a day celebrating my very most favorite print, I am all for it.
You may have noticed, I wear a lot of stripes around here (see here, here and here for just the tip of the iceberg). I would estimate that half of my closet is striped. I am not ashamed to admit it either. If you love it, why not fill your closet with it? And any time I see something striped, I immediately want to buy them
Stripes are seasonless – you can wear them any time of year and they always look good. They look good mixed together, they play well with other prints, of course they always look good with solids. What more could you ask for?
So in honor of National Stripes Day, I decided to round up some of my favorite stripe pieces for spring… because my closet really just needs more stripes!
This dress is so perfect for work days or weekends. For the work day, pair it with heels or loafers. For the weekend, opt for tennis shoes!
How cute are these striped espadrilles? They would add so much to just about any outfit!
This jumpsuit is absolutely adorable! I love love the bow on the back. If you have an event or vacation this spring or summer, this should be what you wear.
This side button skirt is a great piece to work double and triple duty. It would be great with a cardigan and blouse for work or with a graphic tee and sandals for the weekend.
I kind of can’t get over this striped jacket. Actually it is double the stripes, so it makes it double the fun! I love the ties so much.
If you are looking for just a little dose of stripes, this headband would be a fun addition to your outfit.
So do you love stripes as much as I do? If you don’t, you definitely should re-think your stance on stripes.
