Seeing Stripes for Spring

Christian Siriano resort 2014.

There are definitely no blurred lines when it comes to one of spring 2014's biggest trends- stripes.  This nautical look comes full swing for both resort and spring/summer season.  This time around the classic stripe has been taken to a whole new level.  Not just simple black and white, but combinations of color, various thickness and angles creating a refreshing look and feel.

Christian Siriano featured a few smart pieces in his resort collection with bright stripes in pink, yellow and green.  Wearing interesting color combinations is the way to keep it modern and playful.




Of course, sticking with traditional black and white or navy stripes maintains a classic nautical vibe and makes for an easy look for the office or other corporate environments.  Despite Siriano using brighter shades in his resort collection, he chose to stick with the traditional palette in his spring 2014 collection.

If you want to break tradition mix it up with a bold color like how Josef Ribkoff adds red stripes to the classic black and white.  This makes it both interesting and keeps it simple.  Top a dress like his with a blazer in white or black and your look is fresh.
