It's time to get linear with this season's twist on a classic look
This is a Marie Claire Advertorial
Stripes may be an office staple but they're also one of the summer's hottest trends. From bold asymmetric to classic horizontal, nautical navy-and-white to striking rainbow hues, it's time to re-write the office rules.
So, how do you style your stripes? Don't be afraid to experiment. Clash your lines, add some ruffles, or step out in a pair of striking linear flats to switch it up.
Miriam Stripe Midi Skirt, £150, Whistles.com
For a versatile summer piece, try a flattering midi skirt to take you from desk to dinner. Dress with a statement pair of heels and tuck a simple top into the waistline for a sophisticated silhouette.
Looking for simplicity? This cotton dress with its multidirectional monochrome stripes and softly gathered waist has a smart, relaxed feel. Wear it with worky shoes, a sharp geometric necklace and and a lightweight jacket when you need to look businesslike and swap them for trainers and a denim for a chilled post-work off-duty look.

It's summer, so switch your classic block colour shift for a vibrant striped dress. Keep it simple with a block heel and a pair of retro sunglasses for a striking outfit update with minimal effort. Or, transform the look further with a little ear candy – colourful statement earrings are a real game-changer.
