Summer 2017 Trend: Stripes
Get ready for one of the season’s biggest trends, stripes!
Catwalks and street style have already been hit in abundance, but despite its popularity, horizontal lines can also make the area they sit on appear shorter and wider.
If you’re looking to inject this chic pattern into your wardrobe, have a browse through my tips and looks below to make sure you do so in the most flattering way for your figure.
The Stripy Top
Stripes and ruffles; this is how you kill two trends with one look! Pair yours with white jeans to make a classic fashion statement ideal for both party or everyday wear.
However, if you have a body section you’re more conscious of, try to avoid wearing horizontal stripes and instead opt for a vertical design, as this minimizes the widening effect and flatters your shape.
The Preppy Look
Ideal for those with a quirky style, this cute, fitted dress is how you work the preppy school look in a mature and sophisticated way! It’s a little more risky than your basic striped top, but perfect for those looking to inject a little fun into their fashion.
The Off-Shoulder Romper
The higher the contrast of the stripe, the more dramatic the widening effect. For those of you with curves, choose stripes in a muted color as this is a more subtle and flattering style option. This rust-colored romper with bardot sleeves is ideal, and perfect for the summer weather!
