Trendy Tuesday – Spring Series – Follow the Stripes

If there is one pattern which returns every season it’s the definitely striped one. It may be a classic but as those lines are so versatile, they always appear a bit differently. So for this spring season it’s all about the maxi version. The bolder, the better!

Currently, stripes are part of the collections at Missoni, Dolce & Gabbana, Mulberry, Proenza Schouler and many more. Apparently, you don’t always have to get yourself a designer piece to style a trend according to your taste. Those labels may set the agenda but there are a lot of re-interpreted pieces in a lower-cost segment which are just as cool. Just don’t forget to keep an eye on good quality as well. For example, one place where you can find a mix of trends and well produced clothes is Esprit. The selection which is presented here is only a small part of the new collection – in which stripes definitely play a leading role.

How to style your stripes

When it comes to maxi stripes, your piece doesn’t have to show too much lines. The effect is even bigger, if there are only two of them.  As the pattern is already striking itself, some simple accessories will make the whole outfit look easy and calm. If you are up for a statement color, you can never go wrong with a red and white striped top. Just pair the good old classic with some modern pieces like a fancy headband – festival season and Coachella are just around the corner anyway! However, if you want to try out something different, why not turn those stripes around? The longitudinal option not only gives your ensemble an interesting twist but it also elongates your physique – one wouldn’t say no to this, right? 🙂

Apparently, both kinds of stripes can be styled in current trend outfits. Whether you get them from high fashion designers or from less expensive brands, as long as you got those stripes in your wardrobe, you are ready for spring!
