Another summer trend watch and this time we’re talking about stripes! Stripes were everywhere on the catwalks this year and come in just about every style imaginable. It’s one of the most wearable Summer trends and it’s super easy to style! Stripes are very versatile and with thick or thin, horizontal or vertical, there is something for everyone.
Seaside stripes were seen on the catwalks of Banana Republic, Altruzarra and Zimmermann and are reminiscent of the patterns of beach essentials such as umbrellas and deck chairs.
On the other hand, banker stripes give off a much more formal feel but can also be worked into your wardrobe for casual outfits. Found in the collections of DKNY and Self Portrait, these stripes are inspired by Wall Street.
So how are our favourite stylish celebrities embracing this trend? Gigi Hadid has gone for more of a seaside stripe and is keeping it casual with a two-piece set from Morgan Lane. Olivia Palermo has opted for a subtle pinstripe blue shirt, embracing the banker stripe trend, and has paired it with another key trend – embroidery. This makes her structured look more casual and gives her the perfect day-to-night outfit.
