“Show Us Your Stripes” Winners!

It is no secret that the Edit team LOVES stripes. Since we consider striped-patterned clothes and accessories “musts” in our books, especially during the spring and summer, and since there are infinite ways to style stripes, we asked YOU to show us how you are styling your stripes this summer! And we couldn’t have been more excited about the results! We have received over 90 outfit-pic entries this past week via Instagram and Twitter. Literally every outfit was incredibly stylish, which made narrowing down the outfits to just 10 a very tough job. {We wish we had the time to post them all! To view the majority of the entries, you can search #editbylauren on Instagram.} We picked ten of our favorite looks, all listed below, showing many different ways to style stripes for summer. We hope you will be as inspired as we have been by these fashionistas!
Bethany from Perfectly Coutured {@bma_21} combined pastel blue stripes with mint green accessories, and dressed up a pair of boyfriend jeans. We love this fresh, summery look.
