Swimwear – Beachy Keen

As summer is coming to a close, it’s time to catch those last waves before you have to pack away the swim gear.  We love this chic swimwear line that focuses on being stylish and athletic.

We were inspired by their mixed prints of conversational butterflies, nautical stripes, and the every popular this past season, bold oversized florals!

Wovens – Plaid and Stripe Play

We came across this great shot from the Sartorialist and we were instantly inspired by the experimental use of mixing a large neutral balanced plaid, against a bias striped tie!

We love that this look isn’t too over the top… It still has a classic appeal, but keeps the blazer style from looking too boring or traditional, especially with a little subtle color in the stripes!

Check out our inspired plaid & bias stripe combo board to download them.

Trending – Ripe Stripes

According to this recent Stylecaster report, stripes are a major trend for Spring 2011.

Runway shows had everything from your typical horizontal symmetrical stripe to stripes in varying weights and sizes, even find stripes in vertical layouts. For Spring, think technicolor and 70′s prep style…no more boring pastels and muted stripes here!

Go bold with our stripe inspired board!

Stripes – Striped Down

It’s a fact that stripes are big this season – and by BIG we mean size proportions! Menswear and Womenswear RTW collections showed an interest in going bold with large scale stripes on everything from jackets to dresses. Some designers took a chance with coordinatedshort suits in neutral stripes, while others elongated the figure in wide vertical stripes. Risky? Yes. Do you think consumers will catch on to this trend in stripes?
