From preppy, 60's Mod, or nautical inspired, stripes reappear time after time. Stripes have been trendy for several years now, especially since Kate Middleton has made them a staple in her wardrobe. Stripes can look chic in many variations from wide and bold, to skinny subtle. Stripes can act as a neutral or be the star of your ensemble. Even mixing a striped top with a floral scarf is on trend! Moreover, J.Crew for 2014 mixed a business-y striped scarf with a playful tee. I think it is safe to say, stripes are here to stay! Happy, happy, happy!
