Your How To Guide On Wearing Stripes The Right Way

Statement stripes are everywhere. Practically every designer, capsule or resort is serving up their variation of the statement stripe. Monochromatic birds rejoice – you have never been more on trend. The classic Bretons are out in full force with mix and match variations endless. The current season’s trend is to not sit on your laurels and let the stripe do the talking but to take action in the directional shapes and silhouettes.

PANT IT

Vertical is universally flattering, I think everyone knows that and rolled cuff pushes your outfit over in nonchalant territory. However, the horizontal, depending on the placement can work hard to slim. Love the wide leg but are a bit concerned that it’ll look too pajama party? Pick pants that sit higher towards or on your waist. This will also elongate your torso.

MIX AND MATCH

The old rule of ‘you can’t mix prints!’ which I can practically hear your great grandmother shriek from her grave is obsolete. If you’ve been paying attention to any of our street style recaps, or some of the bigger designers, you’ll notice that mixing prints with stripes is not only okay, the right formula is highly coveted. Get the look with our Stripe Illusions Top HERE.

ALL IN

 

Head to toe stripes are effortless. You’ll gain massive impact with the right combination of stripes both wide and narrow. There is zero need to over the top accessorise. Keep the look flattering and focused and keep your accessory solutions chic and pared back. A time piece or simple studs are all you need. The pared back rule applies to your footwear too, if that be simple flats or heels. Avoid any styles that add bulk or pull away from the outfit choice. Go all in with our Stripe Illusions Dress HERE.
