Let’s be honest, this trend is one that tends to stay around season after season, right? Yet, I’m always amazed at how designers seem to find new and creative ways to reintroduce the beloved stripe to us. This year is no exception of course. Nautical wear has always been associated with spring and summer ensembles but more and more fashion no-no’s are becoming fashion uh-huh’s… and designers are taking that concept and throwing the nautical stripe right into the mix for winter wear!! And I, for one, am a HUGE fan!
So… when my brother and sis in law were looking for Christmas gift suggestions… umm… I gladly added this item to the list!! And goody for me…. they came through with this classic piece that I’m wearing!!! I decided to temper the more traditional colors of this sweater with a bold hue on the bottom.
Remember, with prints continuing to rule, the stripe falls right in line (no pun intended!)…. You’ll have no problem finding striped tops in lots of color choices and sizes. And latest spin to this trend: color blocked nautical tops (see picks here at Ann Taylor and Loft).
