Nautical stripes are without question, one of the hottest trends for summer. I absolutely love stripes – for me, they conjure up images of beautiful, sunny days spent sailing on the Chesapeake Bay!

Wearing stripes can be challenging, however. Horizontal stripes on a tank or tee only make you look wider. Horizontal stripes on a skirt? Don’t get me started!

The easiest way I’ve found to incorporate trendy stripes into your summer wardrobe is through bold, eye-catching accessories. I’ve highlighted three of my favorite options here, but you’re sure to find a host of other possibilities in a variety of prices ranges. Stripes are simply everywhere this season, so climb aboard mate!
