I have nothing against stripes as a pattern (full disclosure, I am wearing stripes right now). Stripes are cute, stylish and contemporary- and certainly a more attractive alternative than their pudgy counterpart the polka dot. The Row's resort collection, however, just put me over the edge. I love the nautical theme, mink coat and the dress (separately) but those socks too? At first, we were all like "that's it, I am so over stripes." But then I looked around the office and realized almost all of my StyleList coworkers were wearing stripes (no, we did not plan this).
