Jump on the Spring Stripes Trend Now

Don’t forget about our two fabulous giveaways… an $100 American Express gift card and an Origami Crane necklace!

If you caught a glimpse of some of the S/S 2011 collections you know that stripes are set to be the next big thing this spring! Designers like Fendi, Jason Wu and Marc Jacobs each put their own fabulous spin on this trend. From traditional nautical stripes to bolder looks…stripes are gonna be where it’s at…and why not try this trend on for size now? There are plenty of winter appropriate striped sweaters out there that should satisfy your craving until spring breathes some warm air back into our lives!

I oersonally want to throw on that DVF pretty along with a slick of red lipstick and channel an impossibly chic french dame STAT. What about y’all? Do any of these striped pieces strike your fancy?

    Stripes are tricky if you’re not petite, but I like that you tracked down a number of items with stripes that are actually flattering. I love the top one the most!

    Ahhh stripes!! I’m always so iffy on them since they tend to make me look wider than I am but ones like the Anthropologie pullover are my faves – a mixture of thick and thin strips that flatter me (I found an H&M sweater dress for $7 that had the same style and I’m loving it). So glad stripes will be still be in style! And sorry I haven’t visited here lately, really hope everything’s going well for both you and Megan 😀
