It’s an oldie but a goodie and this season stripes get a refresh…

I’m pretty sure every single person has something striped, be it colourful or the classic black and white, this print is one of fashions’ favourites and can be worn in so many ways. When I was putting this post together I didn’t realise how many linear pieces I have but they are my firm wardrobe staples and this season designers from DKNY, Louis Vuitton, Dries Van Noten and Balmain injected some eclectic fun into the trend.

Easily mixed with other prints, try a stripe T-shirt with a floral pencil skirt, or throw on a striped blouse over leopard print trousers. For work, nothing beats a vertical print stripe jacket and this summer you can even get away with matching trousers.  Another great way to the nautical look is with accessories, be it a bag, shoes or just fun pair of sunglasses, there are endless options to make it work for you. The rule is, there are no rules, get inspired and don’t be afraid to go over the top, more is more!
