Forget solids this fall. Stripes of every size and color add a punch to dresses, tops, skirts, sweaters and vests as autumn settles in and we gear up for winter. Not quite a print, but far from basic, stripes can be paired with a solid top or bottom to maximize color or simply bring a little wow factor to an otherwise plain look.

Go wild and try mixing in other prints, like florals, polka dots or herringbone, to deliver a unique look and add a little texture. And best of all, stripes are good for just about any occasion, whether you're hitting a dressy cocktail party or simply going to a movie with pals.
