When it comes to stripes – a forever fashion trend – we’re normally firmly in the classic nautical/Breton gang. Until this season that is. Yep, another linear look is gaining pace for spring in the form of bold, vertical stripes in a clash of primary colours. Big names Balmain, Hilfiger and Jean Paul Gaultier championed the trend on the catwalks, and stylish girls on the street can’t get enough of Marni’s vibrant separates.
Think lego-inspired colours – yellow, red, green and blue – and look for lines in varying sizes. Doubling up on striped separates is a no-brainer for creating extra impact – check out ASOS’ cool co-ord – while classic black shoes and bags are the perfect polish-adding finisher.
While we’ll always have room for our faithful Breton tops, a brand new stripe is just what our wardrobes needed. And, the vertical variety are endlessly flattering, really making this a no-brainer. Click to buy our high street hits right now- it’s the easiest way to earn your style stripes this spring!
