"This is like asking me to choose between puppies and cupcakes, but here goes: I adore stars, but a good stripe never, ever goes out of style. The pattern's crazy-classic, matches absolutely everything and is inherently French—stars just can't compete with that. The breton striped tee's an obvious must-have at this point, but to freshen things up, why not choose a striped dress instead (or should I say, additionally)?" -Elana Fishman, Senior Digital Editor

"I'm worried I might be a stripe-aholic. I can look at any pile of t-shirts and I'm always drawn to the striped version. I have short sleeves, tank tops, Breton versions and sweatshirts. I'm especially partial to navy on white and I love the variety of stripe widths in this tank from J. Crew. " -Karen Wilson, Senior Digital Producer

 

"I've had my eye on a pair of simple, gold, star-shaped studs for a while. Frankly, I'm not sure what's stopping me. They're $40 and I'll probably wear them every day for the rest of the summer. Also, stripes just feel so done. (And yes, I know I'm wearing a striped shirt right now. Stars are just more exciting.)" -Verena von Pfetten, Executive Digital Editor

"Stars are too hippy-dippy. They had their moment last year with the Dolce & Gabbana stars pattern that was shot for every magazine under the sun (including ours, via Rachel Weisz).

Stripes go the distance though and will never, ever be out of style. You will always look classic and a bit preppy which, in my book, is a very good thing." -Laura Morgan, Special Projects Director

"Star prints are too borderline childish for me. I'm pro-stripes for sure. They're classic!" -Adrianna Barrionuevo, associate fashion credits editor
"I'm obsessed with stars on clothing and accessories! It feel so playful without being top juvenile. You can bet I'll be wearing this skirt with my favorite Rag & Bone t-shirt this weekend." -Samantha Trenk, Public Relations Director
"I'm bored of stripes; they're EVERYWHERE. Give me something star-printed instead." -Natalie Matthews, Digital Fashion Writer
"If someone builds a time machine, travels several decades back and convinces Edie Sedgwick and Jean Seberg to switch over to stars, maybe ill make the trade, too. Otherwise, viva la stripes!" -Alison Syrett, Digital Fashion Writer
