Nautical Stripes + Coral

summer outfits, MidoriLei wears blue and white nautical striped tote and hat, coral top, white jeans, and white sandals

Jazz up a simple summer outfit with nautical stripes in different sizes- wide stripes in a tote bag and skinny stripes in a hat.

*Will this outfit work on your body type? All my outfits emphasize flattering an apple shape -wider shoulders/narrow hips. In this picture I am 5’1′ 140lbs.  I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.

Who says you can’t wear long sleeves and pants in summer? For one, white jeans are surprisingly cool to wear in summer. Also, featherweight, almost sheer, cotton long sleeve tops add an extra layer of sun protection.

Here’s why I’m obsessed with this outfit.

First, coral works on any skin tone.  If you don’t believe me, check out this post I wrote a while ago.  It’s why I love putting people in coral outfits when I give makeovers.

Second, I love the mix of stripes in this outfit. It’s almost like playing with two different prints. The wide nautical stripes on the tote pair nicely with skinny nautical stripes on a hat.

Lastly, I finished off the look with with thong sandals and voila! I’m ready to hit the beach wearing your bikini underneath. This makes me want to fly to the white sands of Boracay and sip on a creamy mango smoothie.
