Though each new season brings a fresh crop of prints, there are others that pop up year after year. Case in point: stripes. And can you really have enough of them? While your brain may begrudgingly say yes, your heart is likely saying of course not. So, go with your heart on this one and celebrate your love for line-adorned pieces with a little shopping for J.Crew's National Stripes Day. This year, not only is the retailer serving up a slew of stripy styles to get you through the summer, but also two exciting collabs that stripe-enthusiasts will want to get their hands on ASAP.
While National Stripes Day isn't until June 21 (also the official first day of summer, by the way), the retailer has already pulled together a range of striped pieces to get you ready for the fashion-focused holiday. Included in the mix is everything from a timeless red and blue oversized striped tee, $65, and a playful seersucker bather, $118, to a rainbow beaded barrette for $15.
But, before you start scrolling through all the stripes, you'll want to set your eyes on the two special, limited-edition collaborations J.Crew has done in honor of the event. First up? The retailer came together with the stripe-loving, NYC-based brand La Ligne to create what's likely to become a favorite top in your summer rotation. Priced at $148, the La Ligne X J.Crew tee gives La Ligne's classic "Charlotte" striped style a dose of on-trend rainbow tie-dye. And since each tee is hand-dyed by a local craftsman, you'll be getting a one-of-a-kind piece that you can pair with your go-to denim cutoffs and breezy white skirts.
J.Crew's second partnership is with Poolside Bags, and it presents the perfect opportunity for you to bring a new striped accessory into your lineup. The natural-colored straw Mak mini beach tote, $150, features navy stripes as well as an inside pouch that'll keep your belongings safely tucked away for errands and seaside trips. Making the totes that much better is the fact that they're handmade by female artisans using natural materials and sustainable processes.
