Timeless, iconic, always on trend—no I’m not talking about my personal style (wink, wink), I’m talking about stripes. Whether they’re vertical or horizontal, wide or narrow, stripes instantly transform any piece into a wardrobe classic. Though they’re obviously appropriate for any time of year, I especially love wearing stripes in the summer months when the nautical trend is having its time in the spotlight.
This striped romper from Urban Outfitters was perfect for my trip to Catalina Island (read my travel guide here). It almost reminds me of an old-fashioned swimming suit (talk about vintage). The linen fabric, halter neckline and button-up front perfectly combine to create a chic, casual and comfortable look. Plus, the muted neutrals really let the island’s beautiful scenery and bright colors stand out. I can’t wait to wear it again!
