What Would Holley Wear: Happy Ways to Wear Summer Stripes

Looking for a fun pattern to boost your mood?  Then “don’t worry…be happy,” because summer stripes are exactly what the style doctor ordered!

I have to admit, a striped summer dress or skirt topped with a denim jacket always puts me in a good mood.  Tuckernuck offers an adorable blue striped skirt and white t-shirt topped with a blue denim jacket. Their breezy halter dress in a vintage stripe looks great draped with either a blue or white denim jacket….perfect for rainbow watching!

Looking for the trendiest of trends?  Then striped handbags and shoes are the look for you!  For shoes….Amazon Fashion is our go-to. From a cute pair of rainbow striped Keds to a wonderful selection of striped espadrilles, they offer so many happy choices.

Planning a getaway to Mexico or maybe just to a Mexican restaurant?  Then Zara’s colorful zig zag shopper with circular wood handles is just the bag for you.  And I’m loving their striped raffia shopper and multi-colored beaded bag as well….the perfect complement to a cute summer skirt or crops. Looking for a show stealer?  A rainbow ark bag is the way to go…but only if you love compliments.

 Instead of happy pills, the style doctor is prescribing a striped skirt paired with a t-shirt.  An adorable look worn by the Damsel in Dior blogger pairs a blue striped skirt with a white tee, white Staud bag and brown slides.   Printed tees are all the rage, and what says “love is love” more than a printed tee matched with red and pink striped culottes? On the count of three, everyone say….Good-bye Prozac!    

Why not take the rainbow to the office?  We think style influencer, Eadie Blair’s striped midi skirt and belted linen jacket will bring joy to any office environment!  Nordstrom’s striped midi skirt says one thing to me….the more stripes the better! And a blue striped dress from Shopbop will unquestionably bring a dose of happiness to your work day.

What says “let’s lounge” more than a striped kaftan or maxi dress?  Nothing….right? I love how Nordstrom’s beach throw can be worn as a sarong or a maxi.  Though, maybe your lounge lifestyle is relaxing at home. I get it! Check out our Pinterest page for an affordable flowy maxi in bohemian stripes with bell sleeves…perfect for the patio.  

Isn’t it nice to know there’s a happy pattern that will lift your spirit and give you style all at the same time?
