Read between the lines. Stripes are a summer essential you won't want to be without.

Few prints are as translatable across different styles than classic stripes. Whether you’re into classic or trendy style, stripes have the uncanny ability to fit in seamlessly into your wardrobe.

We’re particularly obsessed with  stripes for summertime, thanks in part to its nod to nautical style, which we covered in last week’s men’s Stylists’ Picks

The look on the left is a cool, downtown approach to stripes, while the one on the right is a more classic, country club-inspired rendition of the beloved print. Either way, stripes always add a fresh and summery vibe.

Once reserved for undergarments and clothing trim, lace and eyelet have really branched out into full-on style statements, particularly for warm weather months. When it comes to fabrics, it doesn’t get any more feminine these delicate and pretty fabrications.

Whether you’re going for a romantic boho or a sweet and girly look, lace and eyelet are invariably alluring.

Take a gander at some of our favorite lace and eyelet pieces for this season! :

Lily Pulitzer Shayna Dress (right on photo above) : Reminiscent of a 1960s lawn dress, this brilliant piece is perfect for a garden party or romantic lunch date.

Green Dragon lace Ruffle Wrap Top: The intricate lace design and frilly ruffle trim on this top make it super feminine and delicate.

Free People Maxi Lace Skirt: We simply adore this ethereal and romantic take on the ever-popular maxi skirt.

XCVI Loveliest Tunic: Such a fitting name for such a beautiful woven lace tunic.

Even though we’re seeing a comeback of shorter heels and kitten heels, there’s still a special place in our hearts for the leg-slimming, leg-lengthening brilliance of sky-high platform wedges. For those of us who are on the shorter side, or those who just refuse to be seen in flats (you ladies know who you are!),  it’s  comforting to know that this season still boasts quite an impressive crop of height-amplifying platform shoes for us to lust over.

Here are a few of our must-haves for the summer:

Steve Madden Wissper: This nude-colored sling-back platform really lengthens the legs!

Via Spiga Eve: With a flair for the ‘70s, this stunning platform really makes a fresh statement. It’s definitely better than anything Marcia Brady could ever dream of!

Nine West Bottos: There’s a lot to love about the versatility of this casual wedge. Wear it with anything and everything!

Pelle Moda Jamba: The gladiator-like straps coupled with the cork and espadrille combo make this one fabulous wedge sandal!

MICHAEL Michael Kors Juniper Espadrille: The braided strap over a nice, tall espadrille wedge gives this such a boho flair.
