STATEMENT STRIPES

Stripes never go out of fashion and this summer is no exception – this dramatic trend is gracing our catwalks, fashion magazines and favourite fashion stores.

Stripes make a bold statement – the wider the stripe, the bolder the statement. For our fashion-forward followers, dare to go all out in head-to-toe stripes. If you prefer to play it a little safer, a good tip is to emphasize only one part of the body to avoid a pyjama feel. Try a scene-stealing striped skirt or trousers, or our fashion favourite – a striped statement dress. Paired with anything from sneakers to stilettos, stripes can effortlessly take you from daytime fun into evening elegance. A striped T-shirt is a great way to introduce the trend, paired with comfy shorts for a chic casual look. Or spice up your neutral office outfit with a striped tailored jacket for a look that means business.

Here is a great style tip: Vertical stripes can help elongate your figure and make you look slimmer (a north to south effect) whilst horizontal stripes can give shape to a slim body (a west to east effect).

Still hesitant about wearing stripes in clothing? Why not try wearing them as a stunning accessory, like a statement handbag, scarf or hat?

Go on, get ready to earn your stripes this spring!
