Add a graphic punch to your outfit by choosing accessories with multi-colored stripes. A scarf, handbag or headband is a great way to sport the striped trend, especially if you're not quite ready to embrace a striped top or dress. A belt with stripes gives any outfit a preppy feel, esspecially when paired with white jeans or khakis. A large tote with blue and white or red and white stripes takes on a nautical vibe and says "summer" with style, even when you're not at the beach. Look for an unexpected color combination, like bright green and yellow or orange and pink, for an added punch.
You can even sport stripes on your feet! If you're looking for some new kicks, try on a pair of fabric espadrilles, loafers, or ballet flats with stripe designs that range from subtle to bold. Chunky bracelets, watchbands and even novelty pedicures are unexpected ways for the understated fashionista to show her stripes.
