CRISP SUMMER FAVORITES FOR JULY: 7 STRIPED ITEMS TO COVET NOW

by Marisa Marcantonio


There is no denying stripes look even more alluring in the summer months. From sipping an iced tea under a striped awning to lounging on the beach beneath the shade of a striped umbrella, this linear pattern seems to be everywhere, and becomes even more apparent come warm weather. I've rounded up some of my favorite striped finds, on items that are expected and a few that aren't.

Everything Work + Sea creates is artistic--   this watercolor striped wallpaper captures the artist's hand with its naive, uneven linear pattern

A summer wallet lightens things up, and in this case, keeps them festive. Balenciaga's blue and white striped wallet from Net a Porter resembles the striped beach umbrellas on the French Riviera.

A classic maillot in stripes-- so all-American. Bathing suit brand Solid and Striped does the always in style one piece swimsuit right.

I love this skinny striped bedding from new bedding brand,  Hill House Home. The Slim Stripes collection is subtle and understated, and looks great mixed with pure white bedding.

Trimmed in white tassels, this jaunty striped coverlet from Serena and Lily packs a punch in red, white and blue stripes.
