I love Nautical Colours and Stripes!
I can’t get enough stripes. I. Love. Them. In my wardrobe, they come mainly in blues, but recently, in black and white too, as it seems this will be a big feature for Spring 2013. Today I wore this gorgeous new little jacket from Sass, an affordable line from Sass and Bide. It is a stretch jersey fabric with a 3/4 sleeve – oh so easy to wear and perfect for pre-spring. Today I paired it with black jeans and t-shirt, but wait til I mix it up with some red shoes and coloured jeans.

I wore a coral-pink lippy so my face kept up with the intensity of black and white.
Coral is a great colour that has intensity without being too harsh. Often if you can’t wear red, you can wear coral as a substitute.

And here is another idea for stripes, but using the traditional navy and white theme, which is easy to mix with classic accessories, such as the pearl studs, navy bag and red/navy neckerchief. This is such a good basic canvas to mix and match different accessories to either dress it up or down. It is understated and classy and can take you anywhere.
Bring on Spring!
