stripes for springThis trend is half 1920’s flapper/half New York sophistication. The stripes trend was strutting their way down the catwalk in the Spring/Summer fashion shows! Stripes are great for giving your outfit an edgy and on trend look.

Not only will you be showing off your trend knowledge with stripes, but you can also key it in with the Nautical theme for Spring/Summer, add a blue skirt with a striped crop top and you’re on to a winner.

With stripes it’s important to think bold & simple. Be careful though, dependent on your body shape you should either keep to horizontal or vertical stripes. Those pear and apple shapes, stick to vertical lines as it can lengthen your torso and slim you down; those who are tall and thin use horizontal stripes to give the illusion of curves.
