Fab Finds: Striped Shirts

Stripes are all the rage right now. I’m happy about this as I absolutely love stripes; however there are many who disagree with me. I hope that these pictures will help change some minds.

Everywhere I look lately it is stripes, stripes and more stripes. Whether I am at work, shopping or on public transportation all I see is stripes! Stripes are a great option to have in your wardrobe, because they are versatile, very comfortable and come in a variety of styles.

Despite people thinking that horizontal stripes don’t look good on them, I think they can look great on just about anyone. Pair a striped shirt with a pencil skirt and wear to work or throw on a pair of jeans. Add some funky jewelry and heels depending on the occasion. So, before you turn your nose down on stripes this season, try them on again…who knows — you may like them.

High Fashion, Low Maintenance: Summer Day-to-Night Fashions

Our style mantra: Fashion and beauty are for everyone, no matter how busy your schedule or how small your budget may be. We represent the fashionista who has places to go, people to see, or just likes to sleep in a few extra hours. There’s no reason to run to class in sweats and unblushed cheeks when glamour can be achieved with just a little extra effort. Check here as Chelsea unveils quick tricks and perfect products that can update your look in a hot second, without breaking your budget.

It always helps to have an outfit that can pull double duty, wearable both day and night. It can be quite easy to turn your summer day look into a night ensemble with just a few accessory switches.

day to night

Take one dress from the beach to the bar.

For an example of how to turn your look from day to night, I used this simple drawstring tank dress from American Apparel as the basis for both styles. Solid dresses are the easiest summer staple to transition with different accessories.

During the day, try a pair of flat, strappy sandals, like this pair by Lily Pulitzer. I love the little details in this pair, but you can find similar sandals for less almost everywhere this summer.

Take things up a notch at night with a pair of high-heeled wedges. This leather knotted pair from BCBG are adorable and very summer appropriate.

A large, hobo bag is your best friend on a busy day. You can only pull off straw accessories like this Gap bag in the summer, so rock it while you can.

At night you don’t need to carry much, so a clutch is easy and compact. Brown leather clutches, like this envelope clutch from Urban Outfitters, are a lighter, more summery version of the typical black.

Embrace summer with beach-y jewelry. You can’t quite wear a seashell around your neck come December, so wear simple accessories like this Tiffany’s inspired starfish necklace while it’s still warm.

Make a statement at night. Tiered necklaces, like this one from Lauren by Ralph Lauren, really stand out and easily dress up your look.

Practical and cute, a sun hat is sun protection and summer style all in one. This summer, the floppier the better, like this ribbon tied, terry cloth hat from Juicy Couture.

No need for a hat at night; instead pull your hair back and wear a pair of big, attention grabbing earrings. This pair from Kenneth Cole are gorgeous, but not gaudy.
