Make a statement in spring's hottest trend and invest in something striped...
This season it’s time to embrace stripes. Forget about your classic navy and white breton styles, we’re saying hello to multicolour, multidirection, stripe-on-stripe action.
There really is something to suit everyone, too; you may want to keep it subtle and opt for a fine pinstripe blazer or blouse, which is perfect for work. Or you may want to go all out with a bold wide-leg trouser or maxi dress, which will really draw attention to your weekend look.
Want to wear your stripes at night? Then it’s all about sheer stripes. We’re looking to the likes of Stella McCartney and Chloe for catwalk inspiration as they both totally nailed the look, making those linear lines feel fresh and playful for the new season.
At Marie Claire HQ, the fashion team are channelling a bit of stripe-on-stripe by way of co-ords and jumpsuits layered over classic breton tops. The key is to keep prints the same and opt for complimenting colours wherever possible.
