Stripes are not just to express your love for anything nautical or Persian anymore. I have spotted the mixing of stripes on some of my favorite street starlets mixing this pattern for a mesmerizing look. It’s definitely bold and a statement that you are making when you mix two completely different stripes, but I find that if there is ever a time to be adventurous with your wardrobe it’s during the summertime and on a Friday! While looking through my striped pieces this morning I choose a comfortable jersey dress with beautiful draping and a vintage sweater to create my look.
I’m sure most of you are actually experiencing summer weather; as I have mentioned many, many times in the last few weeks, the fog has decided to hug the West Coast of California for what seems like moths now. Meaning, you would be insane to leave your bungalow without a sweater. Not to fret, for your resort wear you can easily accomplish this look with opposing stripes in lighter materials. I think they key is to have one color in your stripes that ties both pieces together. Here are some pictures for inspiration to help you bring out the bold stripes in your wardrobe:

What is it about Beverley Hills that makes every girl feel like they are experiencing some sort of Pretty Woman moment? While my days have not been filled with bubble baths and Richard Gere seems to be nowhere present, shopping in la la land for a client has me dreaming of khaki silk short suits and thigh high boots. Not to be worn together…
Volume was a huge trend (pun intended) at NYFW and luckily I packed an easy a-line dress to keep me comfortable during my hunt for the perfect pieces today. I will happily be injecting volume into mine and my clients wardrobes for SS16 as I definitely got my fix of bodycon dresses living in Miami!

Only two more days of NYFW Street Style shots filling my Instagram feed; I am not looking forward to the transition back to different variations of avocado on toast and inspirational quotes followed by #enlightened. This season I was not front and center at the shows, my California Endless Summer tour continues in LA the next few days. That being said, I can not be more thankful to the designers who have streamed their shows live. Between that, Twitter, and Instagram, I almost feel like I am standing on a corner in Brooklyn about to throw my phone in the street waiting for a Uber in the most uncomfortable shoes I own and late for the next show.
I have been seeing your usual suspects during the SS16 season shows- botanical inspired prints, crochet, and muted pastels in light, easy fabrics. One trend I was particularly happy to see is black and white stripes. Whether it was mixed mediums or to offer structure to the garment, hints of black and white have been popping up on the runways the past few days; I have full faith that the London shows will continue to bring a little edge to our SS16 wardrobes.
