Spring Classics for Transitional Weather

Every spring, the red, white and navy of nautical style reappears in the world of fashion just as surely as daffodils reappear in the garden.  This year, another trend amps up the look: bold stripes.  The stripey trend is all over the fashion bibles, in bold black and white including vertical stripes on both loose-flowing pants and skinny jeans.  At the same time, navy and white or off-white vertical striped pants are a casual version of the trend that blends perfectly with nautical style.

I combined my new navy-striped jeans with this navy nautical shirt from Joe Fresh for this look to wear to the mall with my friend.

A well-known advantage of vertical stripes is that they give the illusion of being slimmer, so wearing them on your bottom half is good for almost everybody!

On this warm, late winter day, with snow melting and sun shining, this outfit made me feel like spring is really coming!

All classic and no glitz would make for a dull outfit.
