Style your wardrobe with stripes this summer

By  |  0 Comments
EARN your fashion stripes this season by taking a linear approach to your wardrobe.
With summer fast approaching, now is the perfect time to take this reliable trend to the next level.
As advised by experts from High Street retailer Topshop, seek out stripes in clashing colours for a cool, thrown-together look which isn’t for the faint-hearted.
Proving that classic needn’t ever be boring, the Breton stripe is the cornerstone of chic, effortless style with a hint of boldness.
And, despite monochrome versions still dominating the runways with gusto, the High Street has put a colourful spin on this look in pastel shades and a multitude of bold brights.
Dresses come in refreshing shades of enchanting turquoise and coral which will work wonders for brightening up a dull day.
Pop your colour with clashing hues in bright red and blues or go for cool metallics and summer pastels.
Multi-coloured stripes can be paired with khaki or navy neutrals for a statement look that screams 70s glamour.
However, if you’re looking for something more subtle, stick to black and white motifs against a neutral palette or varsity jerseys layered over sophisticated pencil skirts.
Whether it’s a horizontal striped top or towering wide leg trousers, experiment with dimension and take your image to new heights.
Stripes also look great when paired with leather separates and distressed denim pieces which are also bang on trend this season.
Celebrate this look with fervour by breaking out of the horizontal mold and trying out something slightly more eccentric.
Here are some of the High Street’s most covetable striped items which will help you take this classic to a whole new level.
