I’m addicted to wearing stripes, I have been for a number of years. In my opinion, you cannot beat a Breton-style top and I’m pretty sure I own about 15. Stripes are such a massive trend at the moment and were seen on the catwalk for SS15 and SS16 of so many designers such as Altuzzara, Prada, Preen and Missoni.When I noticed more and more striped trickling onto the high street, I was in heaven so I thought I would pick some of my favourite pieces from different brands.
ASOS: Warehouse Striped Dress // ASOS Bardot Style Sundress // ASOS Premium Textured Wrap Dress // ASOS A-Line Striped Dress // Only Striped Co-ord Top // Only Striped Coord Trousers // Vera Moda Striped Wrap Dress
NEW LOOK: Black and White Striped Funnel Jumper // Striped Cross Body Bag // Striped Jacquard A-Line Skirt // Textured Striped Maxi Dress // Striped Wrap Shirt // Navy Pinstripe Sleeveless Blazer // White and Red Striped Long-line Shirt
BEST OF THE REST: Karen Millen Floral Striped Jacquard Dress // Whistles Summer Striped Fedora // Miss Selfridge Frill Bardot Top // Karen Millen Striped Stretch Knit Dress // Kurt Geiger Striped Clutch // Quay Austrailia My Girl Sunglasses // Primark Striped Jumpsuit
Hopefully, some of these items have caught your eye for your Spring wardrobe and haven’t bored you with an overload of stripes. I love how easy stripes are to wear and as I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’ve just booked to go to the South of France in May, so I can’t wait to pick up some of these pieces and wear them on the streets of Monte Carlo whilst trying to rock the whole French Chic look.
What trends are you looking forward to in SS16? Let me know if there are any trends you’d love me to do another trend focus on.
