The Fashion-Girl Trick For Making Stripes Look Fresh


Blake Lively is serving up one striking look after the next at the Cannes Film Festival (to no surprise), with one recent look catching our eye as the easiest trick for dressing up classic stripes—embellished extras to team with the closet staple. While Blake’s take is certainly geared to the red carpet, the look easily translates to the every day via a bateau top, high-waisted skinny jeans and adorned add-ons. By pairing playful accessories with classic pieces, the casual look instantly feels fresh, whimsical and above all, chic. Below, four affordable pieces to channel Blake’s style. Now if only the French Riviera was on the agenda, sigh.
