Nothing transcends seasons more seamlessly than stripes. This summer, they are ubiquitous both on the catwalks and the streets. Stripes add an Edge to casual get-ups and a quiet charm to more sophisticated looks. Just to prove stripes are not just about the iconic Breton top, here are just some of my favourite stripey numbers in store this month!
Loving this classic shirt dress, The short-sleeved dress has a flattering fit and flare shape emphasised with a tie waist. Punctuating the striped pattern are pretty lace inserts along the sleeves and hem, adding texture and a contrasting pattern. A perfect option for summer dressing! Tan flats for day and add a heel for evening!
We all know how I love a maxi but you just could not go wrong with this stunner! Vertical stripes add the illusion of height. Add a wedge for the vertically challenged (also the straight hem allows for easy alterations !) the perfect holiday dress to which can be rolled up easily with little creases. Super soft and so comfortable it’s a must have for me!
I absolutely love this next little knit dress. If it’s one thing I have learned since having the two boys is comfort! I still love to dress up but running around after two monkeys I have to think about comfort too. And no matter that month it is in this country, unfortunately we also need to think about being warm. This slouchy oversized jumper dress is the perfect choice for days where you want comfort but also style. And the stripe detail and gorgeous mix of Colours just nails it for me.
I really could go on and on with my stripe picks but I’ll finish with this gorgeous little cotton shirt. I love a simple shirt but I adore the attention to detail on this little number with white lace on the sleeves, the Stripe pattern and the knotted neck. Style with your favourite jeans for effortless casual chic or as I have here with white jeans for a super fresh summer look. I am loving these cropped flare jeans for summer. Not your cup of tea? We also have white skinnies! Lots of options to suit all taste buds 😉
