Trend Watch | Stripes

One of Spring 2013’s biggest trends is stripes.  And this girl couldn’t be happier.  I’ve adored stripes ever since I was a child.  My mom was always a fan of the nautical vibe and that sort of rubbed off on me too.

This year’s stripes are updated with splashes of neon and other bright colors.  Mix them up with other patterns (think polka dots, florals and leopard) to be totally on trend this spring.

  • I am such a stripe girl! Love me some stripes! Those wedges are so cute and fun!!

  • Yes…Shay and I love us some stripes. In fact, I think I need lay down some sort of self-inflicted DON’T BUY ANY MORE STRIPES rule. But maybe I need those wedges first…

  • Stripes are a favorite of mine. Growing up on the lake, I always had a thing for anything nautical. I am wearing stripes today! I like the splashes of neon thrown in for this season. You can never go wrong with a bright pop of color. Heather

  • I’m happy too! Yea for timeless and classic stripes!

  • I’ve been eyeing that Madewell top! I love it!

    LOL, I’m like Schaeffer, I can’t get enough stripes and I’m so happy that the nautical theme is hot this season. I love navy and white and I don’t have any yet. I just love the preppy, clean look.

  • I love these – especially the Skecher’s wedges! I’ve been trying really hard to save money and NOT go crazy on spring purchases, but that might be the little pop of color and dash of something new that I’ve been looking for. Thanks for sharing!

    I have been having a love affair with stripes since I started reading blogs – about two years ago. 🙂 I am looking forward to adding a striped skirt and hopefully a striped button down to my wardrobe this spring. 🙂

  • I for one am so glad stripes are still in style
    My closet is about 40% stripes LOL

  • I love that Mini Boden dress for my 3yo daughter! She would probably tszuj it with some flowers. 🙂 For me I’ve been looking for something chevron-striped for about a month now.

  • I really love the stripes! I am so ready for Spring!

  • Stripes are my obsession. (If you read my blog, this is incredibly evident!!). I couldnt be more thrilled that stripes are the “in” trend of the moment 🙂

  • We’re on the same wave length. My post yesterday was all about neon and stripes! Love both!

    Stripes? Mad for them! My sisters and I used to make fun of our mother and her sisters for all turning up to family events in the same colour scheme- more often than not involving a navy and white stripe. Fast forward 20-odd years and guess what is starting to happen… oh, the horror! Loving the blog!

  • Love me some stripes. I’m all over them in navy, coral or green… or yellow. =]
