Eleven Striped Styles Under $50

Unless you're aiming to give yourself a bikram yoga session while running errands, it's too hot outside to layer. So instead of tossing on that leather moto jacket or those patterned ankle socks to get a bit more texture, punch up your summer outfit by choosing a breezy dress, blouse or shorts in a vibrant pattern—like stripes.

Candy-colored, nautical, pin stripe, wide bands: whatever they may be, each of the striped staples and accessories below is under $50. So they're not just a cheat sheet to giving your July outfits more dimension, they're relatively cheap ones, too. (Which means more money to put towards that air conditioning bill. Yay.)

A Beetlejuice-y alternative to the more demure striped button-down.
