While it is not quite time to pack away your plaid and snowflake patterns, stripes are looking fashionably fresh on clothing and home accessories.
Stripes are showing up on textured sweaters, blouses, table linens, even dinnerware. Think of them as a midwinter picker-upper.
Here’s a peek at some that already have landed in stores or online, as well as others arriving soon.
Color burst: A striped boat-neck blouse in shades of blue and green, $59.50, is a brilliant way to dress up coordinating slim pants. From LOFT, loft.com.
Off to work:
A striped blouse, $16, looks crisp on this spring career look by Worthington from JCP.
Good sport: A tan striped yoga bag by Olsenboye, $30, measures about 15 inches high by 9 inches wide by 10 inches deep. At jcp.com, where you can also check for store availability.
Your stripes are served: We found this Finn dinnerware online at Crate & Barrel, crateandbarrel.com. (See website for pricing of individual pieces or sets.)
