Something about clothing with horizontal stripes always brings Europe to my mind - probably images of gondoliers that I saw in my childhood. There's also a long time association with sailors, making stripes very nautical, and thus perfect for summer.
Effortlessly chic, simple, and timeless, I could have certainly chosen worse. And with slight variations, the range is nearly endless. Not to mention the fact that I've only included horizontal stripes in a limited palette - imagine the possibilities if you expanded into stripes with more colors, or vertical stripes.
Of course, now I need to go shop for more stripes! Let me know what you think of these outfits, and please share your favorite set of stripes!
