Stripes, Stripes, Stripes!

As we move into summer, with events like graduation and family barbecues, building a warm weather wardrobe is essential. If there’s one great thing about summer style, it’s the ability to experiment with new looks and trends. We’ve loved watching the store fill up with the bright colors and patterns that summer brings along, but there is one trend that so far has stood out the most–stripes!

How cute and summery is a striped maxi?

Whether for kids or adults, stripes have been highly popular this season. Shown on a variety of styles, from skirts to shirts, or dresses to rompers, it’s clear that stripes can be worn plenty of ways. No matter where you choose to wear your stripes, I recommend pairing them with something basic elsewhere. A solid color usually works best to keep the outfit from looking too busy, and to provide some balance.

Though stripes can be worn all year round, they’re particularly fun, loud, and funky for the music festivals that come in the summertime. It’s never too soon to plan ahead for Chicago’s famous festivals, and stripes might just be the perfect touch to that easygoing vibe. Shown here are our favorite stripes that we’re currently carrying in store.

What do you think? Are stripes a trend you’d be willing to try? I’d love to hear!
