Nautical stripes in the dead of winter? Absolutely! Traditionally reserved only for resort or spring/summer, Breton stripes have emerged as a major winter look. But we aren’t talking about pairing them with white capris or espadrilles. This winter, it’s all about losing the prep. Choose your stripe of choice, then pair it with skinnies and tough-chic booties. If you’re game for mixing prints but fear actually doing it yourself, start with a Breton stripe and add a scarf in a coordinating polka dot or contrasting floral pattern. The key to the winterized stripe is keeping is seasonally-appropriate and just a bit edgy.
