This year we resolve to dream of the sea.
As these grey, frigid days drag on, our thoughts drift to the beach. Maybe it’s the subzero temps or the vitamin D deficiency talking, but we’re tempted to leverage it all for a few days in the sun. We soldiered up this winter and short of a holiday in Belize, we’re gravitating toward a few wardrobe updates to make the tail end of winter a bit more bearable.
Nothing says spring like a good set of stripes. Think late 1950s motifs inspired by the beach chairs in Forte dei Marmi or the umbrellas in Saint-Tropez. The resort collections were bursting with fun interpretations of these. Have a look at the trends here--colors merging, rainbowed, varying widths, outlined, fading and swirling.
So if you’re heading to the beach to beat this dreary cold, pick up some time tested resort stripes to anchor your look. Or follow our lead and mix them with staples to add some sunshine to your day-to-day.
