Stripes are a year round favorite of mine, but there’s nothing better than the perfect striped Summer outfit…actually the only thing better is SIX perfect striped Summer outfits!! Stripes are THE quintessential Summer pattern, the perfect mix of nautical and preppy, and a favorite of pretty much every stylish person on the planet. You might not have plans for upcoming holiday, but these 6 bold striped looks are all the outfit inspiration you need to unofficially kick off summer this Memorial Day Weekend.

PS this post wouldn’t have been possibly with Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs…no really…my legs are covered in bruises from dancing and that stuff is pure magic. I received a few bottles of it last year and after a few very unsuccessful tries at using it I basically stashed it in the back of my beauty drawer and forgot I had it. Fast forward to this year and after a couple attempts I am now a HUGE fan! My suggestions for applying it (since as I mentioned I had a disaster or two before figuring out the best way) are #1 stand in your bathtub while applying it (trust me), #2 make sure you don’t have any lotion on your legs and #3 don’t apply it directly to your legs, instead spray it in your hands and apply it in circular motions until it’s evenly applied and rubbed in. Voila Airbrushed Legs!

I haven’t quite finished swapping my Summer and Winter clothes yet because other than a few fluke nice days the weather’s been pretty shitty in New York so far this Spring. While brainstorming for this post I was debating between two dresses, neither of which I like very much, and then I remembered about this off the shoulder dress I picked up last year that I luckily didn’t pack away at the end of last Summer. Sadly it’s no longer available, but I rounded up my favorite striped pieces that I might just need to pick up this season!
