Three cheers for the red, white and blue. The looks positively patriotic in a thin-striped Chinti and Parker top tucked into a pair of red skinnies.

Also looking festive for the Fourth: , whose cheery Madewell navy-and-red tee pairs perfectly with fitted white jeans (though we’d swap the booties for neutral sandals if you’re hitting up a BBQ).

Horizontal stripes as maternity wear?! proves the print works on a burgeoning baby bump when the stripes are wide-set and with a slight chevron.

If you want your stripes served up saucy instead of sweet, opt for a fun batwing tunic like the one sports. Bold gold accessories and a contrasting red clutch take this look from beachy to club-ready.

In a sea full of navy, pale blue stripes (as seen on Kristen’s Splendid blazer) will stand out and add a polished touch to even the most casual outfit (think: a tee and ripped jeans).

However, if you love the classic look of navy stripes (hey, they’re popular for a reason!), you can’t do better for a summer dress than one in this print. Jenna’s narrow-stripe, scoop-neck maxi is breezy but is easily dressed up with wedges and jewels.

Leave it to Rachel Zoe to make stripes look like an urbanite’s uniform instead of relaxed beach attire. She goes completely city-chic with a graphic black-and-white maxi. (We especially love the varying widths of the stripes on hers.)
