20 striped clothes to buy before summer

It’s long been known that summer style is defined by nautical striped clothing, from dresses to sweaters. But the classic pattern gets a makeover in 2022, thanks to bold, exaggerated new lines and a mix of unexpected colorways.

Gone are the days when stripes were just for daytime casual wear. On her Spring 2022 runway collection, Tory Burch took the nautical base motif to an uplifting sartorial staple with plus-size striped dresses. Several other designers are also proving just how heroic stripes can be in evening wear – see Harris Reed’s expertly tailored suits and Carolina Herrera’s show-stopping dresses. And it’s not just neutral black and white patterns that are on the rise. Prismatic stripes were major elements of presentations by Studio 189, Kenneth Ize and Colville.

If you’re looking for ways to freshen up your traditional summer stripes, you’ve come to the right place. You can go big with a matching head-to-toe ensemble or take the effortless approach with a one-of-a-kind dress. Either way, you’ll find the best striped clothes right out front.
