So, how do you like your stripes? Vertical, horizontal, subtle or bold? Being a minimalist dresser myself I typically prefer a not so in-your-face look (see photos). These days the stripe look is not just limited to the familiar nautical fashions of yesteryear.

Stripes have been given a fresh look this spring with vibrant colors, diagonal and pinstriped patterns. Want to make a statement this season? Try pairing the classic look with plaid or animal print. Want to elongate your figure? Choose vertical graphic stripes for a lean visual effect. This spring the possibilities are endless. Currently stripes are on trend, but will continue to be the quintessential Americana style.

If it's important for you to get the cost-per-wear out of your stripes don't be afraid to spend a little more green for a good quality item. Whether it's a jacket, blouse or dress most likely you probably will be wearing it again next year. If it's not that important to you, buy a less expensive option, experiment  and have fun with it! However you like your stripes be fabulous in it and own your look, because this trend isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
