stripe a pose

April 12, 2016

This season we’re reinventing the word stripe by creating new prints with vertical and horizontal lines, mixing thin and chunky, and having so much fun with color. We love this trend because you can wear these new stripes mixed, matched, and totally over-the-top for a truly high-fashion twist.

Check out our exclusive video with Style Director Becky Jantzen, and discover why she’s crazy about spring stripes!

They say a leopard can’t change its spots, but that doesn’t mean spots can’t be stripes. We love the inventive Margherita Dress, which arranges a punchy pebble pattern into vertical lines for a stunning take on stripes. Match it with the La Belt for an original stripe-on-stripe look!

The Tivoli Top is simply one of the most versatile stripes in the Collection. Dress it up and wear it with a suit, or dress it down for the beach (and give a nod to the sun god by rocking the golden hues of the Helios Cuff!).

We took classic nautical stripes and completely reimagined them with the long, asymmetrical hemline of the Boat Stripe Tee. It’s so cute when you leave it peeking out from underneath a cozy sweater. Wear it all day with the Destructed Skinnies for a city-girl-on-the-high-seas look. Pro tip: wear the Villa Necklace as a choker or a bracelet…or switch it up midday!

This just in: over-the-top is the new neutral! This spring we’re wearing eye-catching multi-pattern stripes like the Siesta Poncho, and matching them back to, you guessed it, more stripes. Keep your base layer simple and reach for the subtle gray and blue of the Sky Stripe Tee, and go big with your accessories!

On chillier days, we love pairing the fabulous fold-over stripes of our Crop Top with the casual, everyday chic vibe of the Mesh M’Leggings—ready to step out in style with a fetching built-in skirt. Don’t forget to punch things up with accessories (go for gold!).

There’s vertical, horizontal, and then there’s chevron. This unique V-shaped pattern draws the eye and makes a stunning visual statement, like our Linea Cami in mesmerizing pop-of-color monochrome.

Subtle, tonal stripes team up with two-tone lace on our new spring favorite, the Sophia Sweater. A piece with so much visual interest calls for an equally stunning complement, which is why we’re matching it back to the flowy, tribal stripes of the Villa Pant.

The First Mate Tee has all the distress of a shirt that’s sailed the seven seas, but somehow still belongs at a yacht party. Pair it with absolutely anything—we love this broken stripe with the easy elegance of the Traveler Pant and the breeze-beating brilliance of the Loren Sweater.

In Capri we discovered something we absolutely loved: Limoncello—it’s such a sweet little treat after a long meal. With subtle, thin stripes in front, and a chunky yellow/gray stripe at the back, the Limoncello Tank is our way of celebrating the delicious stripes trend. Saluti!

So there you have it: all our stunning spring stripes. We’re always looking for new ways to pair conventionally unmatchable prints, so think way outside the box and tell us about your pattern-clashing favorites that not only work, but look absolutely fabulous!
