Nautical Inspired: Summer Stripes

If there is one enduring summer trend that I love, it's stripes. And I'm talking about nautical inspired stripes in particular. There is something so fun and summer about navy and white stripes. Plus, they're incredibly versatile. Just like a nice leopard print, I use navy and white stripes almost as a neutral. So many colors play well with them! And I'm all about multi-purpose pieces. What mama isn't? Kids grow out of clothes so fast, it's important to have an interchangeable wardrobe...Am I right?

You can rock nautical stripes with metallics, which is what I usually turn to, and they look just fabulous with uber brights like neon as well. And there is always the classic red, white and blue combo. It doesn't get much more Americana than that! Navy and white stripes even look fabulous with colors like yellow, coral and green...I could go on and on. So, now that you've seen why nautical stripes are one of my major summer style crushes, I thought I would share some of my favorite navy and white stripe pieces for kids.

Whether you're shopping for your little dude or your little lady, I've got you covered. From tees, to shorts and even dresses, there are a plethora of ways your kiddos can rock nautical stripes this summer! And if you really want to get crazy, you can use them to try out some print mixing. I've always loved a nice plaid and stripes or polka dots and stripes pairing...Just sayin'! You could also mix smaller scale stripes with larger scale stripes like I did with my lil' lady bean's Burt's Bees Baby look. She looks darling next to her big bro in his striped tee and bleach bottom shorts!
