3 Fresh Ways To Wear Stripes

See more about this Episode
As soon as summer comes (and, uh, it's officially here), the word "nautical" gets thrown around as a descriptor for all things rope-tasseled and striped. But, striped clothing doesn't always fit squarely into this category. Instead, the print — which is not only on-trend but forever-flattering — can go in a variety of wardrobes, from athletic wear to girly to, yes, even preppy. And, if you're of the belief that horizontal stripes make you look wider not taller, think again. Ahead, we bring you three fresh ways to re-up your line game. Just excuse the puns that ensue as we prove our thesis.
