You’ve still got plenty of time to rock your summer pieces, but by now, you may have grown a bit tired of your favorites.

Anything striped! Stripes are a bold way to showcase your style this season. This timeless pattern is highly effective in creating a statement-making ensemble, and whether you’re on your way to the office or the mall, stripes are never off the table.

Contrary to popular belief, anyone can wear stripes, no matter your body type! If you’re intimidated by bold prints, don’t worry. You can start off slow, with just one or two key pieces, to get the benefits of this timeless trend without overcommitting. A black and white striped tank top is a versatile piece that’s perfect for both casual looks and those you can rock for a night on the town.

Additions like a red lip or a pair of luxe gold jewelry can elevate these fierce ensembles even further.
Surely you’ve noticed the onslaught of maxi dresses on the streets by now. Floral prints and stellar solids dominate the trend, but you can easily up the ante by scooping up a striped maxi instead. Not only is a striped maxi dress chic and completely effortless, but you can also jazz it up with accessories for extra pizazz. Opt for a denim vest, a studded cross body bag or a pair of stylish wedges to take the look the extra mile.
Summer-appropriate items like striped bags, nautical jewelry and striped pumps and wedges can do wonders for injecting a welcome burst of fun into your overall look this season. Even better? Pearls pair perfectly with these chic little pieces. Let them be your guide toward a million and one hot summer ensembles.
