Colorful and Calming Stripes

Is it too soon to get excited about summer coming? We know it's barely spring, but summer, with its long evenings, sunshine and bright colors woos us every year. What better way to get yourself and your home ready for the season than with some fun, summery stripes?

The long-lasting myth about stripes is that they have to be bold and bright to be summery. That's just not true. Yes, striped accessories in fun colors certainly evoke the feeling of care-free summer, but soft, paler hues can do the same. Whether you go with something striped in 3 or more colors or you choose an item with only two colors, we hope you find the striped accessory the best fits you and your summer personality.
