We’re going for a stripe-on-stripe look with this outfit. The green and white striped Amelia Tank features a flattering and captivating crisscross design. Pair it with the Trio Sweater, a knit cardigan with wide color bands on the sleeves. Finish off this colorful look with a classic pair of jeans.

A red and navy look is such a springtime vibe, especially if the weather is just on the cusp of getting warmer. We love the unexpected design of the Lighthouse Tee, which is solid navy on the front and has a wide stripe pattern on the back. Red jeans and a denim jacket are the perfect statement pieces.

Go for a full out maritime look in the Harbor Jacket paired with white denim. Style the bright red Knotty Tank underneath for a touch of color. When it comes to sprinkling an outfit with stripes, don’t forget about your shoes! The Bow Kitten Heel has a striped bow detail to tie your look together.

Hit your favorite café in the black and white striped Relax Game Day Sweatshirt styled with the loose and flowy Café Lounger and the Kenya Jacket. Take this cozy outfit from casual to dressy by adding your favorite statement jewelry pieces and swapping your flats for heels.

Style the broken-stripe Dashes Sweater back to a black cami and your favorite denim. These pieces are great neutral bases to pair with a bright shoe (like the Siren Sandal!). Add the Shrimpton Scarf as a belt or in your hair for a little print mixing. Pair with a glass of wine.

Here a few extra pro-tips for how to style your striped items:

· Horizontal stripes are one of the most flattering patterns. They’re great for those with fun, daring personalities.

· Pair your striped jackets and toppers with bold, bright solid colors underneath.

· On the flipside, a vibrant topper looks great paired with a striped base to temper the bold hue and add dimension to your look.

Ready to branch into pattern mixing? Stripes are the perfect jumping off point! They pair wonderfully with any other evenly-scaled print, especially if the color palette is the same…like a black and white binary look!

There’s good reason stripes reappear season after season…year after year. This classic, playful pattern will give you so many fun styling options for springtime, so have at it!
