Shopping for some new looks? Let's discover one of the newest trends, and summerize your style . Summer is finally here. Why not add some stripes?
Start with a bag. Sharpen your look. Be bold with Valentino and a new take on the Rockstud, or subtle with Balenciaga. Charms included.
Dress up or dress down, Marni offers a clean, colorful touch that will add a punch to both sides of your summer looks. What looks totally new is striped footwear. Uptown or downtown, the look is striking. Try Valentino or Margiela.
Stripe shirts have been a staple for years. Why not blow up the proportions and mix it up to make a statement? Monse, Prada and Off White all add to the conversation. Prada likes mixing it up with stripes top and bottom.
Stripes mix with florals at Balenciaga, twisted geometrics at Marc Jacobs or lace trimmed from Off White.
Love the Fendi mix, and the subversiveness of Prada. Thom Browne is abit more cheeky with the lace added to the classic pinstripe jacket.
Sporty stripes are back. Knit to perfection. Prada and Valentino go sporty and casual. Altuzarra takes a body con position.
Stripe it up for evening. Missoni does elegant tiers and Valentino pieces it.
You don't need a million dollars to look like a million. Vintage stripes love to be paired with flowers, and local Brooklyn designers have their own take on the trend. Celebrate summer. Wear Stripes!
The drab days are behind us. Spring is finally here. Celebrate the season with one of the biggest trends. Flowers, florals, roses...but not the boring old kind.
Brighten up your look, and even your dog's hangout.
Hand yourself a bag. Fendi and Dolce & Gabbana do some of the best ones. Embroidered, appliqued or printed. Perk up a plain look with a feminine addition.
A face full of flowers from Comme des Garcons has unexpected punch. The Marni magpie mixes geometrics and florals perfectly. And Gucci delivers with a head to toe look. The colors are vibrant and the scale makes an impact.
Monochromes look good too. The scale is still there, Dries does a muted gold demure dress and Stella McCartney sculpts hers with asymmetric panache.
Even Off White/Virgil Abloh endorses the trend. His jean jacket even gets the floral treatment. Say it with lilies.
Flowers come out at night. Delicately embroidered and demure from Valentino or faded and flou from Alexander McQueen. Or add a coat like this one from Libertine. These statement pieces are not sugary.
A contemporary take on flowers mixes them up. A casual luxe Fendi bomber jacket works with jeans, as does the floral intarsia sweater. Tropicals are spliced and pleated, paired with cool jackets.
Heels, boots and sneakers spread the floral news. The Off White collab with Jimmy Choo stands out. Transparency added. As do the Dolce&Gabbana rosy kitten heels. Get your kicks from Giuseppe Zanotti.
Maybe you want some more traditional florals...The patchworks from Alexander McQueen blend old and new. And nothing can beat a vintage Prada dress.
Take your pick and stay in trend.
