This week: I really like the “nautical” look and I want to pick up some striped tops and dresses in time for summer. I prefer relaxed and easy pieces as I spend most of my day on my feet. Thanks! – Chloe
Hi Chloe. Firstly, nice work! The nautical look is great for summer and so easy to wear. In terms of tops, Juicy Couture’s Yacht-Stripe Boatneck Top ($138) and Vince’s Oversized Nautical-Stripe Linen Top ($95) would look great with skinny jeans and sandals. If you want something with a glam twist, however, you should definitely check out J Crew’s Jewel Necklace Tee ($138). As for dresses, French Connection’s Stripe Knit Sheath Dress ($98) is perfect for casual days, as is Ella Moss’s Striped Dress ($175). If you want something a little dressier, check out Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti’s Large-Stripe Shift Dress ($430). Happy shopping!
