I haven't done a post regarding "Trend" in a while so I thought it was time to talk about Stripes. Most people have some sort of striped garment in their wardrobe; from a silk scarf, a knitted jumper or even a little vertical bold stripe dress lingering in their wardrobes somewhere. Yet again stripes are back!
Originally being seen on the fashion weeks from Prada to Marc Jacobs and Jil Sander, bursting with a selection of stripes from bold to skinny, contrasting black and white and those "brights" that are still very much still on trend. Stripes have filtered it's way back to the high street too, mixing with colour block and creating a burst of visual perspective on a more practical pocket happy budget.
My thought for the day, Stripe it up, invest in some vertical/horizontal colours, play around with items in your wardrobe (no doubt you have some stripes somewhere) experiment with colour block, (who would have guessed a blue and white striped tee shirt goes with an illuminous bright body con skirt?- it actually did)
Have fun, and remember to be an individual, however conventionall stripes may be- there is always something that keeps the trend coming back.
