A roundup by Fashion Fabrics Club Online: 5 fun and unexpected ways to bring summer’s stripe obsession into your looks right now.

The Long, Lightweight Cardi

Even the hottest of summer days can turn chilly at night. A lightweight cotton jersey cardigan packs up small enough to toss in a bag for the day and still provides just the right amount of warmth once the sun goes down. The thin horizontal stripes give instant eye-catching appeal to summer’s easiest go-to outfits, like cutoffs and a basic T.

Linen Dress

Linen is a long-time warm-weather favorite thanks to its cool, airy feel and laid-back appeal. In a stripe pattern, like this dress here, it gives linen a dose of sophistication, allowing it to work so nicely with the very feminine lines.

High-Waisted Trousers

It’s no secret that stripes can do some major eye trickery when used in the right way. If you’re looking for a way to majorly elongate the leg this season, opt for a striped suiting fabric to create a high-waisted floor-length striped trouser. The combination of the high waist and long, lean lines carry the eye down to create a legs-for-days illusion.

T-Shirt Dress

The cotton T-shirt dress is essential for those roll-out-of-bed summer days. To give it a more polished, preppy spin try rendering it in a cool, horizontal stripe pattern. This piece is a great addition as it can be work well into the fall, as well. Just toss on a denim jacket and riding boots when the weather starts to cool.

Seersucker Shorts

Seersucker is usually seen in articles that are more on the dressy side, like skirts and dresses. However, the summertime favorite looks totally fresh and modern when used in more relaxed pieces—like this pair of scallop-hemmed shorts.
