It’s the trend that has been all over the catwalks this season, with high end brands like Balenciaga showing us adding a stripe can whisk away the winter blues.
Nothing gets us ready for summer like a seasonal stripe, and adding a bold pattern to your wardrobe is the perfect way to give your style a new lease of life and make it look more interesting.
Spruce up any outfit by adding a jumper with horizontal stripes, or switch up your work wear with pinstripe trousers. From bold chunky stripes to tiny pin stripes, there’s a stripe to suit everybody!
If you’re new to stripes, a Breton style jumper or t-shirt is an easy way to adopt the trend. Team it with a staple pair of blue skinny jeans and some brogues to create an outfit you can wear again, and again.
Wearing stripes for summer? Try layering up over neutral basics to create a classy, smart look with minimal effort! In the winter months, opt for colourful stripes on your outer layers like coats and jackets to add a pop of colour to your outfit.
Bold coloured stripes were a popular feature on the spring/summer 2016 catwalks, and we don’t expect it to be any different this year. Team a striped colourful polo with your favourite boyfriend style jeans for a relaxed and playful look.
How could we forget monochrome? Black and white stripes can be tricky to pull off and can make you look shapeless if not worn correctly. Break up the pattern and create a more flattering shape by wearing stripes in alternate directions.
Create the illusion of an elongated silhouette with vertical stripes worn on the bottom half. Team this look with heels to exaggerate it further!
We hope this blog has helped you to feel more confident when sporting stripes in the future. And don’t forget, we allow up to four outfit changes during all our photo shoots, so why not try a selection of styles?
