Full disclosure: we've tried to put ourselves on a stripe-buying ban three times now, and it just never sticks. Stripes are not only a Spring staple, but give you that instant French-girl feeling (you know the one: polished Parisian elegance, red lips and boat trips, Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin on the French Riviera, etc.) — and with the Cannes Film Festival kicking off today, we thought it more than necessary to indulge ourselves in some striped shopping. Whether you're hoping to channel a nautical-chic look this season, or just trying to find your inner bon vivant, we've got you covered. Click through now to see and shop 25 budget-friendly striped pieces worthy of wearing for work, play, and beyond.
