We're getting ready to set sail into summer and what better way to show we're ready for the sunny season than with seaworthy stripes? That's why we covered the nautical trend in "Set Sail" [June] and this week's Reader of the Week took note. Anderson confidently rocked a striped crop top and matching fitted pencil skirt to cross the stage at her college graduation. Red tassled heels and quirky sunglasses elevate the look from easy and breezy to chic and playful.
