Trend now: Suit up, sailor!

February 2, 2010

A fav fashion editor of ours, Christina Binkley, wrote a piece this week about the comeback of sailor stripes this season and it made us want to pull some of our favorite options for the style right now. Part Coco Chanel inspired (did you see Coco avant Chanel? We LOVED it!) and part preppy chic, we’re loving horizontal stripes and rope accents (check out Natalie over at Coquette’s post on rope embellishments- they’re so cute!).

Go subtle or go bold. But either way, go stripes for spring.
