Anyone who knows me knows that I have this thing with stripes. I don’t wear them, but they have a strong presence in my home, particularly in Mexico where vivid color and pattern melding just works. It’s no surprise, then, that I notice them everywhere on the swimwear scene for 2019. Cabana stripes, pinstripes, border stripes, curvy stripes, vertical, horizontal and perpendicular. Stripes with flowers. Stripes with geometrics . Stripe beachwear is prevalent this season. Truth be told, stripes have always been correlated with chic water wear. Just use the term nautical when speaking in fashion terms and they emerge. They are a staple in casual wear. The current incursion of swim to street, like intimate apparel, makes the statement that much more prescient.
