Inspired by the classic confection, pictured at right via, this post is dedicated to ribbon candy stripes, which are sweetening the deal on everything from scarves to sofas!
We'll begin with accessories! Coach has branched out from basic leather goods to fanciful extras such as the striped cuff (top left) and tote (center) pictured in the collage above.

Couture Carrie is loving Fendi's leather and stone belt, pictured at left courtesy It reminds me of the ones we used to wear in grade school with our Osh Kosh B'Gosh trousers, but with a decidedly more grown-up feel.
For you more adventurous
fashionistas, there is Missoni's classic weave fedora with striped brim and ribbon trim. Go to

If your budget is scant, get the candy couture look with this rainbow lucite bangle from Forever 21.

Ideas for crafty types: If you have the DIY spirit, craft your own little clutch by affixing grosgrain ribbon to a cosmetics case you got as a freebie from Clinique! Or simply belt your favorite solid summer shift with a length of ribbon.

Now for frocks! The Narciso Rodriguez ribbon striped dress at left is currently half off at Perfect for cocktails on the veranda!
If color isn't your thing, keep it simple and chic with this Mason black and white candy-stripe dress, made all the more delectable with a shoulder tie. Strap on some Dior gladiators and hit the club! Go to

Or tote a graphic Lulu Guinness handbag, like the bold black and white number pictured at the center right of this post's polyvore.

CC's favorite by far? Furniture for the fashionista! Behold, the
most delicious couch ever - this candy-stripe sofa by Chair Couture. Good enough to eat!

Satisfy your sweet tooth without gaining an ounce - yum!
