Forget the breton, it's all about bold linear styles this spring
No spring wardrobe is complete without a stripe, and with that in mind, we reckon this ultra-chic knit from Stella McCartney is well worth a look.
Forever a style staple, the stripe is back yet again for SS15, and this time, it's gone graphic. Forget safe sailor styles in navy and white combos, this season calls for big bold lines in clashing colours. And luckily, Stella McCartney has totally nailed it, offering up this statement version.
How to wear it? Marie Claire's Fashion Editor Lucia Debieux has your sartorial stripe dilemmas covered, offering up some top styling tips 'Dress it up with skinny leather leggings and a statement heel for maxmimum glamour, or for off-duty dressing, get cosy for the weekend and layer under a furry gilet with blue denim. You'll basically bring it out of your wardrobe again and again.'
So yes, this may be right at the top of our budget, but we reckon this will prove to be a worthy investment for your wardrobe for many seasons to come.
