Spring is so finicky. One day you’re convinced there are only warm days ahead; the next you’re shivering in a cold breeze in your favorite spring dress. We’ve been there too. When the sun’s out, we make sure we take advantage of it, and one of the prints you’ll always find alongside our sunny day style is sailor stripes.
Sailor stripes remind us of laid-back life near the water, like walking along the beach or boating all afternoon on the lake. (Side note: We currently have our eye out for friends with boats, how about you?).
Picasso famously wore them, and they were loved by Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, and Brigitte Bardot too. The Breton shirt is the most recognized piece, but we think sailor stripes look great on pants, bathing suits, skirts and dresses too. And let’s not forget the sailor striped sweater!
Here are some looks that showcase the appeal of sailor stripes:
