Whether horizontal or vertical, thick or thin, black and white or multicolor, stripes are making the graphic statement of the moment. Although I can’t think of a time when stripes were not in style, they are certainly here in a big way this spring—both day and night. While in resort wear we saw the predictable return of the slim, nautical Breton stripe, the more widespread update is both bigger and bolder, and it’s making many a must-have out of garments and accessories. So when the captain docks at port, be sure to complement your seafaring attire with this large, high-contrast banded handbag. And the best part? Being striped, it will be just as popular next year as it is now.
