Step out of a Jean-Luc Godard movie and get yourself a Breton striped shirt. It worked for Jean Seberg pretty well. There’s a ton on brilliant options on eBay.

Proving that bold stripes are here to stay, Cara Delevingne sports a pair of black and white jeans, perfectly paired with a motorcycle jacket and high-top sneakers. Thankfully for us, this type of pant is no longer in short supply, with companies like Nasty Gal, Michael Kors, Current Elliot, and House of Holland all taking a shot at their own versions. If you’re feeling really flush, Balmain’s got a pair out right now with zippered pockets that will cost you just over $2,000.

This year is going to see the return of some very bold pattern choices. We’re not just talking about the previously seen maxed-out mashup of acid florals and cheetah prints (thank you, Stella McCartney, we really did love your Resort 2013 collection), but something more simplistic and statement worthy: The stripe. When Marc Jacobs sent Ruby Jean Wilson down the runway wearing only knickers and a striped graphic t-shirt for his Spring 2013 show, he unleashed a monster of pent-up desire for prison chic. Case in point: H&M is already hopping on the bandwagon. Above is one of their “Key Pieces” from the Spring / Summer 2013 lookbook.

This summer, we simply can’t get enough stripes.
Chandon’s limited-edition sparkling wine bottle design, inspired by the “The Great All-American Summer”, and the romper Alice + Olivia designed to go with it. Pretty cute.
