Currently Coveting: Black & White Stripes

Summer and stripes go together like peanut butter and jelly. They are a classic fashion statement that will never go out of style. One reason why we may gravitate towards stripes is because they remind us of how French women dress. What woman doesn’t want to be mistaken for a Parisian? Stripes are a very simple and flattering print to wear; you really can’t go wrong with them. When it comes to summertime, most of us gravitate towards the nautical look. Whether you are vacationing at the Cape or home in the city, wearing navy and white stripes is a summer must! Now, I was going to do a nautical Fourth of July post, but I had a baby instead. So, I have decided instead that I would explore a different side to stripes. Most of us shy away from black over the summer. After a long winter of wearing dark and dreary hues, you want to dress in bright colorful prints. I am here to tell you that black has just as much of a place in the warmer months as it does when it’s cold. I believe that black and white stripes are just as chic and sophisticated as the nautical navy and white version. I promise you won’t look like a referee! Instead, you will look polished and put together, which is all we can hope to achieve when it’s disgustingly humid out. Need a little more encouragement? Below are three ways I have paired black and white stripes together. Wear any of these outfits, and you will be mistaken for a street style pro!
