8 Striped Trends to Copy Now

If you’re flummoxed by florals and polka dots send you dotty, can we recommend this season’s hottest stripes. Thick, thin, pencil, chevron, Breton, vertical, colour-blocked or monochrome – the new stripe is a maverick, a rule-breaker and the styling possibilities are endless. Stick to simple shapes and lean outlines but play with matching and clashing versions to get the most striking effect.

 

  1. An exciting Breton – now there’s a find. Kimono teeshirt, €17.95 @ zara.com
  2. A neat shorts suit is a one-way ticket to savvy city dressing. Shorts, €43.50 @ topshop.com
  3. Make monochrome stripes your new BF. Trousers, Y.A.S, €64.29 @ asos.com
  4. Mash up stripes and florals for a new way to work prints. Dress, €190 @ coast-stores.com
  5. So right for work with a sharp shirt. Culottes, €17 @ Penneys
  6. To wear with boyfriend jeans or your new skinny leather trousers. Jacket, €80 @ riverisland.com
  7. High impact, yet easy to wear. Every woman needs a statement skirt. Pencil skirt, €39.95 @ mango.com
  8. These beauties will add edge to feminine outfits and are also brilliant with minimal looks. Shoe, Nine West, €89 @ brownthomas.com
