Nothing screams summer to me more than French sailor stripes. Classic black and white stripes are one of the most loved patterns in fashion history and won’t be going out of style anytime soon. Ever since Coco Chanel sported the timeless pattern on a boatneck shirt, it has become a popular summer choice for fashion-forward women all around the world, not just for young men catching fish on a boat.
Graphic and chic nautical stripes are one of summer essentials for me as well. They are an effortless way to update your wardrobe for the summer. And there is no need to be near a coast to wear them, contrasting lines can be easily incorporated into a city wear.
For my French Riviera inspired look I chose a flattering fit and flare dress which I found in a small fashion boutique in Beijing. I have had it for a while now but it is an item I keep coming back to whether to wear it on weekends or to make sure that it has a place in my suitcase when I go on holiday.
