It’s pretty much a given that each time we enter the Spring/Summer season, stripes will be one of the most prominent trends. Walk into almost any fashion outlet at this time of year and you’ll see the precise pattern adorning a whole range of items; from a classic Breton top, to a fabulously feminine skirt – there’s no escaping the springtime stripes!
They may be everywhere but there’s no denying that there’s a good reason for this inundation – stripes are chic, timeless and they suit everyone. There’s an endless variation of colourways, which range from simple and subtle, to outright outlandish. You can dress them up or down, for whatever occasion, and depending on the width of the lines, you can really make a statement. With all of this in mind, it’s almost impossible to find a reason not to jump on the stripy bandwagon!
As it’s practically a guaranteed seasonal trend, and a pretty safe bet at any time of the year, it’s worth purchasing some good quality striped pieces which will last for seasons to come. Investing in quality will help to make your wardrobe more sustainable, as you won’t need to replace your clothing too frequently.
