Street Style: Everyone’s Doing Stripes

Stripes are go for summer – they’re the print du jour you simply can’t avoid, and a legion of striped street stylers have been cropping up on our pages of LOOK What I’m Wearing. These four fashionistas caught our eye with their takes on the timeless trend, and now we can’t wait to do stripes the new way!

Amy-Rose’s canny layering creates peekaboo stripes we’re borderline obsessed with. Her baby-blue Love biker dress and H&M bodycon worn underneath are nothing short of the perfect match and, teamed with a two-tone Primark clutch, her look becomes the perfect day-to-night dream. Sophie Milner’s statement jacket is the chic way to rock bold, monochrome lines, accentuated perfectly by her on-trend mules and pretty pastel bag, both from Zara.

For sportier styling, make like Jansell Gillian in her Asos find and opt for a go-faster striped sleeve on jackets or coats to subtly work the trend into your wardrobe. We love her take on slouchy tailoring too, with a cropped knit from M&S and a buttoned-up embellished shirt, also from Asos. And Heidi Thomas lends a cool twist to pinstripes with her asymmetric Dress Lily shirt, worn with Warehouse jeans and Bank kicks. Phew! That was quite the stripe-athon!
