Light and easy to wear, breezy nautical stripes make you feel like going out on the lake in a sailboat while vacationing in Greenwich or Cape Cod, the timeless and preppy all-American fashion. The classic pattern is also reminiscent of Parisian style from the 50s and 60s, of the chic it girls who cemented it firmly in our style conscious. So it’s no wonder that stripes are back on the runway for this season – they go with absolutely everything and give that certain je ne sais quoi.

Get the same look for much less with mark. Seeing Double tops ($28 for one pack of two!) and Flip Over Reversible skirt in black ($28 for a 2-sided skirt). You’ll get that same Parisian model look wherever you are – no French required.
