i am not much of a print girl. i never got into polka dots, geometrical shaping or animal prints. stripes, on the other hand, is my print weakness. i think a good striped blouse or knit top is all you need to pull an outfit from bland to chic. and stripes are equally owned by multiple fashion classes: sailor prep, punk rock, indie kids. fashion snobs and chic geeks alike. if it starts to feel too summery and nautical, transition stripes into your wardrobe for fall by deepening your color choice-- black and white versus navy, maroon and brown over red, etc.
