DCGreetings beautiful people, this week we are taking a closer look at trend number four (of five) for Spring/Summer fashion: stripes! Designers of all ages brought this familiar print to the forefront during runway shows earlier this year, and with good reason as the staple can be a flirty, sporty, or classically chic.

  • Flirty – Experiment with your palate and try using this trendy pattern as a new way to color block. Fitted sheath dresses look wonderful in rainbow stripes. Feminine ruffles and flouncy skirts are the perfect summer look for date night. Keep it fun and playful.
  • Sporty – Look like you stepped off a yacht in the Hamptons with nautical stripes. The navy and white stripes look perfect with khaki shorts and boat shoes. Try a nautical blazer over a cami with your skinny jeans and a nude pump for a casual yet sophisticated style.
  • Classic – Nothing screams chic like classic black and white stripes. Whether it’s vertical stripes on a pair of trousers, or horizontal stripes on a pencil skirt, this look is sophisticated and stylish. The trend is also being spotted in the season’s accessories through clutch purses, stilettos, and scarves. So grab a piece now while they are everywhere and make this staple a part of your wardrobe.
