Hello, La Dolce Vita readers. It's Rebecca from Young Sophisticates wishing you a happy and healthy New Year! I hope 2012 is your best year yet! Last spring, nautical stripes were everywhere... from the runway at Prada, to the red carpet, and at almost every store! Horizontal stripes are still in style, and will give your off duty look a dose of classic cool, now and into spring 2012! How to wear it now? Wear a nautical striped navy and white long-sleeved tee under a black cashmere wrap, like Marc Jacobs' muse Sofia Coppola (pictured above) with dark gray trousers or blue jeans.
What's the best way to wear the look this spring? You'll start shopping for spring soon enough, so why not start to think about it now. Here's some inspiration for your closet when the temperatures begin to warm up...
Ashley Olsen's coral suit from The Row mixed with a nautical stripe t-shirt...
Take the horizontal striped tee in a less nautical direction, with a black and white thick horizontal stripe - like J. Crew's Jenna Lyons (pictured above). This tee is just as versatile as a blue and white nautical tee.
