Spring/Summer 2011 Fashion Trend: Stripes

Another trend that was featured prominently on the SS2011 runways were stripes (Above: Celine; Sonia Rykiel; Jean Paul Gaultier; Jason Wu).  Stripes appeared on every item of apparel imaginable -- skirts, dresses, pants, and tops -- and in all different sizes and colors.  This is a trend that I would imagine that most women can get behind as it isn't too out-there (like some of the other trends this Spring and Summer!) and striped pieces are generally very easy to find in-stores.  You probably already have a striped item in your closet, but in case you don't and you want to give this trend a try, below are some options to consider:  "Accidentally in Love" striped maxi dressfor $49 on; Jack by BB Dakota "Kari" striped skirt for $49 on; Marc by Marc Jacobs "Beatrix" striped sweater for $178 on; "Maritime" striped blazer for $118 on; Wide stripe cardigan for $19.80 on; Striped "slvls" tunic for $8.80 on; French Connection stripe bell sleeve dress for $84.27 on; Juicy Couture cashmere blend slouchy pullover hoodie on sale for $159.99 on; Mystree ruffle neck racerback top for $48 on; Asymmetrical layers dress for $24.80 on

In addition to appearing on clothing, stripes also adorned many accessories on the runways (Below: Christian Louboutin; Tory Burch; Manolo Blahnik; Fendi).  Like the apparel, stripes appeared on shoes and handbags in many different colors and sizes.  

I have managed to locate some fun striped accessories if you are looking for a striped piece to update your Spring/Summer wardrobde.  They are pictured below: Jessica Simpson "Colie" pump for $98.95 on; Coach poppy legacy stripe small wristlet for $48 on; Dolce Vita "Teri" slip-on for $119.95 on; Cara Accessories prepster stripe bow headband for $28 on; Kate Spade New York journal "Maryanne" patent leather shopper for $425 on; Bebe "Natasha" sandal for $109.95 on; Juicy Couture silk rugby stripe "Daydreamer" tote for $248 on; Naughty Monkey "Peekaboo" pump for $54.95 on; Oasis striped bangle on sale for $10.76 on; TOMS canvas wedge for $68.95 on
