With superstorms, Arctic blasts and rain popping up all over the place, it’s safe to say we’re waiting not-so-patiently for warmer spring weather. Yeah, it’s only January and we’re not even halfway through winter yet — but we say it’s time to will in spring with some forward-thinking fashion. And what brewing trend speaks of spring? Stripes of course!

Playful yet polished lines are associated with warmer weather, plus they super flattering too. And, stripes transcend beyond tops, dresses and the old navy-white combo. A bit of online shopping uncovers a variety of stunning stripes, from shoes to headbands and everything in between.

As for budget, of course we admire the Gucci or Dolce & Gabbana striped pieces we’ve been seeing, but the four-digit price tags cause our hopes, and bank account, to sink. Not to worry. Here are 11 affordable and flattering choices for stripe-lovin’ ladies.

11 Striped Pieces to Brighten Your Day

Striped Jumpsuits

To make a big statement, try a striped jumpsuit. Reach for the wide-legged version, as this silhouette is somewhat classier than its counterpart, the catsuit-style, skinny leg jumpsuit. A belt at the waist adds shape and makes your legs look long and lean.

As for color, go for as much as you can handle. A bright color will light up whatever room you enter and surely generate some early spring cheer.
