Sailor stripes popularly known as The Nautical trend is coming back for spring, and well, summer, to seize the street. But this time around, your best take on the trend is to do it sports luxe and put-together. Here are four reasons why you should do a rebound on gorgeous stripes.

1. You already have it in your closet. Remember how we oozed and ahhhed on the stunning stripes last spring and summer? It doesn´t matter whether you put your hands more on the monochrome or on the bright stripes, more likely than not, you have an array of stripes in your closet. Way to bring them out and rework them for spring.
2. They´ll always come back in style. It´s one of those few trends that always come back. So unless you´re a trend masochist, you´ll never feel embarrassed wearing a last season (or last year´s) item because it´s back on trend, right?

3. This years´ stripes have sporty appeal. Think comfy nautical striped tee worn with track shorts and pointed-toe pumps, or a boxy sailor pullover teamed with neat white skort and single band sandals. Very sports luxe!
4. The best approach to stripes is doing it elegant. Done are the days when you quickly pull that striped tee from the closet for a grocery-shopping attire. This season is about wearing it as a dress to a date (make sure to dig mixed stripes as seen on 3.1 Phillip Lim) or as an elegant vertical striped tank under a tuxedo jacket for work. Keeping it polished is key.
Now over to you girls, what makes you excited to wear nautical stripes in spring?
