Striped Situation

Make an impression this summer with a wardrobe packed full of stylish stripes. From vibrant and vivid to simple and classic, stripes are set to be a striking trend for the summer ahead.

To ensure you ride the striped fashion wave, we’ve selected a few key pieces we think you’ll fall in love with – we know we have.

For starters, colour you happy in summer brights from H! by Henry Holland striped skater dress (above left). Perfect for a summer holiday, the online exclusive – purple striped dress and floral striped dresses, both from The Collection (pictured above, centre and right) will also be right at home on a sunny style promenade.

Teaming stripes with another key trend, monochrome options are a sophisticated, classic way to start with stripes. The Red Herring flower print prom dress is a chic option for laid-back summer style, while the Betty Jackson.Black striped tee is just the tee to top off your favourite pair of jeans. For ladies of leisure, the striped Star by Julien Macdonald shirt dress is bound to ensure it will be a hot date you’re lunching with, not just the girls.

While stripes may be enjoying something of a contemporary twist with brights and monochrome, nautical is a classic combination that’s bound for the beach, year in, year out. Dress to impress for an afternoon drink at the boating club in the Phase Eight Zahara striped dress, or pull on the Warehouse striped Marina dress (teaming with striped Faith wedges – if you want to go ‘overboard’) thrown on over a Beach Collection stiped swimsuit or Floozie striped frill bikini top and bottoms.

Such a stylish girl will no doubt be a busy socialite on the summer calendar, so carry a change of clothes or over-sized sunnies in this Principles by Ben de Lisi striped satchel or
J by Jasper Conran satchel bag. For added nautical effect, tie the Rocha. John Rocha scarf around the handle and see it blowing in the wind, just as you set sail.

If you have something to say this summer, we certainly recommend saying it with stripes. After all, horizontal, vertical, monochrome or colourful, stripes are so bang-on-trend right now – whatever you say, you’ll be saying it with style…
