Stripes are perhaps the most stylish pattern a woman can own: Florals, polka dots and plaids may come and go on the runway, but stripes are seen perennially. Even better, they are actually a rather neutral pattern that can pair with a variety of colors and different patterns. The nautical vibe of stripes makes them a summer wardrobe staple.
Here are our favorite ways to wear stripes this season, all for $100 or less:
Take a cue from Rihanna and pair your striped shirt with ripped jeans and heels; it’ll elevate your look from sailor to style icon.
Is there any dress more perfect for a summer soiree than a floaty and flirty striped one, like Emma Stone’s? Pair it with your favorite wedge sandals for a completely effortless look.
To add a fun pop to even the most basic outfit, add a pair of eye-catching striped shoes, a la Jessica Biel.

2. Soludos Candy Stripe Smoking Espadrille Flat ($55)
3. London Rebel Stripe Point Flat Shoes ($33)
Just like striped shoes, a striped bag, like Kylie Jenner’s, offers an element of interest and design that a plain accessory may not otherwise provide.
A striped bathing suit can flatter any body type. Take notes from Angela Simmons.
