Trendy, universally flattering and classically versatile – stripes are in the limelight for this spring, and are ready to be worn in a variety of different ways. So go ahead, and pick your poison.
1. The blouse
A classic striped button-down – vertical, horizontal or diagonal – happily pleases the prep. Style this number with a quirky scallop-hemmed skirt, or tucked into tailored crop trousers. Finish off with mannish loafers for an androgynous vibe that’ll surely dominate the A/W 15 catwalks next month.
2. The skirt
The classic print looks its best in pencil skirt form. Wear this asymmetrically hemmed skirt with a boxy, kimono sleeved shirt and dark burgundy boots. Carry all your daily essentials in this spacious leather shopper bag.
3. The dress
Quick-fix trendy pieces, feel even more perfect and reliable when paired with a quintessentially timeless print. Try this collared midi dress with black leather ankle boots. Finish off your black and white ensemble with a slick of dark red lipstick.
4. The pinstriped piece
5. The sporty stripe
The sports-luxe trend seems to make its comeback every season, so try this longline shirt with a baseball stripe out for size. Pair with mom jeans – with busted knees and rolled up hems for extra style points – and open toed ankle boots that are so not appropriate for the gym. Swap the heels for a pair of New Balance trainers if you’re wanting comfort and a little bit of 90s bounce to your step.
