#trending: Stripes

Prints are having a moment. But there’s one, in particular, you should be coveting this month – Stripes are THE print you need to be wearing RN. In fact, we are staking our claim on stripes and saying they are a print to invest in as they will never go out of fashion. They are a surefire style statement and are classic and timeless. Go for a head-to-toe stripe out with a dress or jumpsuit, or make a subtle nod to the look with a striped t-shirt or trousers. We’ve rounded up our favourite stripes fashion, to help you nail this trend.

 A striped dress is a classic way to nail your stripes outfit. Go for a casual t-shirt dress with trainers for daytime, and then throw on some heeled over-the-knee boots for the evening. You could even opt for a fitted midi dress for more elegant occasions.

If you struggle with how to wear stripes, then stripey sweatshirts are a nice way to subtly rock this trend. If you’re going for the monochrome look with your stripes and the rest of your outfit, then try to coordinate your accessories too.

Earn your fashion stripes with a pair of striped trousers. Not ready to go full effect? Side stripe detailing can add interest to any pair of trousers, for a nod to the activewear trend. Plus they make you look like your legs start at your armpits.

Animal print is big news this year, and so are stripes! So, combine the two for AW18 and opt for an animal stripe co-ord. Skirt co-ords are especially in this year, and if your event is more casual then FYI they look amazing with trainers.

Why keep stripes just for your casual outfits? Get the perfect office look with a striped co-ord set, with trousers and matching top. Team with a block colour coat that complements the stripes, and wear with eye-catching accessories to make sure all eyes are on you.
