Stripes for Spring


I’ve never met a print I didn’t like, especially stripes. Growing up in Ghana, the Ankara print was the fabric of choice for every day wear.  I have lived life in print since I can remember and there is no way of stopping me from wearing them.  With spring rearing it’s beautiful head on Tuesday, I thought it time to put together my favorite prints all week long.

I’m kicking off Monday with stripes, the bold print that screams warm weather is here like no other.  The nautical feel of bold stripes in navy and white combo makes me yearn for weekend in Martha’s Vineyard or the Hamptons.  I’ve loved and lived in stripes for a while. Check out this post from five years ago about how to wear stripes with a few outfit ideas. Stripes this season come in myriad weights and I’m all for it.  Curvy girls, do not shy away from wearing stripes.  My style tip would be to opt for vertical stripes on body parts you want elongated.  It’s all about illusion.  I’ve compiled a roundup of some pieces I’m coveting for the upcoming season and I can’t wait to pick up a few things for my Montreal trip next month.

These Aquazzara Sundance striped leather platform sandals are perfect for June’s Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic or Dan’s Taste of Summer 2018 Rose Soiree in the Hamptons.  Maxi dresses are a must have for easy spring dressing and this one from Forever21 is a must have. Minimalist dressers can get in on the stripe fun with accessories like these Sardinia Tassel Earrings by BaubleBar, or this $49 striped tote from ModCloth.
