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

Right: Lacoste Cotton Bi-Color Striped Crewneck Sweater Dress, Keds Champion Not Too Shaby Laceless sneakers, DKNY Soft Leather Woven Handle hobo, DKNY classic white watch

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! :

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.

Neons and bright, bold colors have become this season’s eye-catching trend to watch, and for good reason. Sprinkled in with your neutrals, bright hues really create a fresh focal point to your look.  Adding in an element of pop using bright colors can be as simple as incorporating a bold-colored bag or shoe to an otherwise understated ensemble.

Below are just some of our favorite brights to add to your summer fashion repertoire: (clockwise)

Marc by Marc Jacobs espadrille: What better way to liven up the classic espadrille wedge than by adding a cheerful dose of yellow?

Rebecca Taylor Party Girl Strapless Dress: Want a cocktail dress that’s completely envy-worthy? This flirty hot pink number should do the trick!

Kate Spade New York Gracie Crossbody in Gulabi: The prim and proper structured shape of this bag is juxtaposed by the bright pop of candy pink.

Cosabella Never Say Never Flirtie Bandeau Bra in Barbados: This lovely bandeau bra is perfect to wear under this season’s sheer or oversized tank tops.

Hudson Hampton Cuff Short in Blue: We are head over heels over this fresh approach to denim shorts. These just scream “summer”.
