what i want now: seaside stripes

I always love a good stripe. Right now I'm attracted to navy and white horizontal stripes in nautical or french-inspired styles. I love the slouch-and-pocket combo of the Elizabeth & James and Michael Stars shirts, and the boatneck shape of the Monrow and DAY tops. Shirts like these layer really well under chunky knit sweaters and vests, and become less preppy and more eclectic when you add a colorful printed or floral scarf. A soft, great-fitting striped top is a classic, all-season piece. Wear yours with jeans and a trench into the spring and with boyfriend shorts and ballet flats in the summer.
