When the warm weather hits, all those summery striped pieces in your wardrobe FINALLY get their chance to shine, but this season we're seeing a slightly different take on the nautical trend. Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and Rihanna all have been sporting a sexier version of the ol' standby by alternating their stripes with a panel of mesh. Oh la la! This takes the conservative (and totally preppy) trend to new heights, and we kiiiinda love it. Just last week, Katy Perry stepped out in a super goth striped ensemble at the 2012 Music Biz Awards. Even though she's technically totally covered up, the subtle flash of skin every so often is enough to transform this dress from modest to straight-up provocative. Also, hi purple hair. We still love you.
Miley Cyrus was spotted on the streets of Miami in a casual-cool see-through striped skirt ensemble. She wore a light wash denim American Apparel crop top paired with a navy crochet Bec & Bridge skirt. She accessorized with some aviator Ray-Ban sunglasses, orange Chloe flats, and a skull print Treesje Mortale messenger bag. CA-UTE. Rihanna rang in 2011 with a red and white striped Louise Goldin frock complete with matching ringlets, a statement necklace, and black pointy Louboutins. RiRi's dress is the MOST revealing with itty-bitty panels of opaque fabric to cover up her assets, but tell us, of all these saucy striped ensembles, which one do you like best?
