Spring Trends: Stripes Galore

Lela BoutiqueComment

If you read our last trend post, you'll know the color yellow is the hottest color for spring and summer. But if you feel yellow really isn't your thing, consider another runway trend that's taking over - stripes! They're bolder than pretty polka dots and easy to pull off too, if you choose the right colors and cuts. Check out some of our picks below for inspiration!

Easy + Breezy: The Brunch/Errands/Fests/ANYTHING Dress

Soft, comfortable, the most flattering cut, and featuring a unique, rose-gold zipper details under the sleeve - truly, a dress you could wear for any occasion. We've paired it with a pearl and rose gold necklace, plus a crossbody bag that has just enough room for cash, card, lipgloss and cell phone to make an entire ensemble you could take around town. Try it with a heels and a cropped bolero for date night or other more formal occasion.

Strut Your Stripes: For Meetings and Galas

You don't need a drop of color to make a bold fashion choice. Just try this jumpsuit. The stripes flare out down the leg, visually slimming the waist. Here we've paired it with some simple jewelry and a bejeweled belt; try it with a blazer and black belt for something office-ready.

For the Commitment-Phobe: The Striped Tote

Still feeling put-off by stripes? Try this tote. It's simple yet graphic design will catch eyes and garner compliments with no effort at all - plus, at $48, it won't break the bank. Even the most pattern-fearing among us could pull it off easily and thanks to the price point, you don't have to feel bad.

Consignment On the Mind

If you're budget-conscious, try shopping our consignment section! Due to the cyclical nature of fashion, stripes have come and gone (and come again) time after time. Here's a small selection of what we have going in store now.
