CATWALK TREND DECODED
Your need-to-see stripe memo
By Daisy Keens, 10 April 2017
Time to do your best Beetlejuice impression cos stripes – big, bold and oh-so-beautiful – are where it's at for 2017. Monochromatic and about as major as it gets, all-striped everything is the new-sason memo that's already running rampant on the streets. Need proof? Look no further...
You have Nina Ricci to thank for your sudden inclination to deck yourself out in black and white from head to toe. Undoubtedly the stripiest show of the season, the brand's SS17 collection was a veritable feast of Beetlejuice-esque brilliance. The styling memo? Go full throttle and extend the stripe invite to your accessories.
Who? Brazilian blogger Helena Bordon. Where? Paris Fashion Week. Wearing? Seriously cool striped trousers, teamed with a crisp shirt and contrasting pink jumper. Follow suit and soften your bold-as bottom half by reaching for some fairy floss sweetness, preferably in the form of an off-duty sweat. You = the coolest.
Try it on
These slinky formal-but-not-really trews make for a statement 'fit when teamed with a matching shirt. Double up for max impact or switch out your shirt for a fresh white tee and denim jacket for an AM-appropes look.
