Earn Your Stripes

– By Teresa Greenfeld – 

The spring 2013 stripe extravaganza, in all it’s vertical, horizontal, diagonal, and criss-cross glory, has spilled over to fall – with a few seasonal adjustments. Bold, bright colors and light airy fabrics turn Autumn appropriate by way of rich, warm colors and luxe knits. If those linear summer brights were perhaps too daunting, fall’s subdued (and universally flattering) shades are incredibly easy to incorporate. If you embraced the stripe with open arms, slip those arms into a striped coat, like this one by Étoile Isabel Marant. On the other hand, if you’re still a bit stripe-shy, Fall brings an arsenal of accessories to ease you in. Try a horizontal striped belt over a vertical striped dress, or pair several striped accessories together in one look – the key is pairing different sized stripes with one another.

We’ve handpicked some of our favorite pieces – any way you wear them, there’s a stripe for every style.
