With appearance on the catwalks of Dolce & Gabbana, Michael Kors, and Marc Jacobs, there’s no question that stripes — a pattern that just makes us buckle under its effortless sophistication — is one of the biggest trends arriving this spring and summer. Having said that, we at Fashion Glamour are pleased to present some pieces you need for a successful stark-and-striped look next season.
Can’t decide between the LBD and LWD? Why not consider a combination of the two colors? This simple striped Marc by Marc Jacobs stretch-twill dress will leave an ever bigger impact. Though it won’t really show off your legs, as it hits the knees, its striking prints alone will usher you to the spotlight without even noticing it.
Unleash your inner boyish style by wearing something similar to Boy. By Band of Outsiders’ striped cotton-jersey jacket. The nautical white-and-blue combo has never been this chic. The label crafted the jacket with leather-trimmed side slit pockets and leather elbow patches, giving tremendous character to its boxy silhouette. Whether you wear this with leather shorts or sleek jeans, this cover-up will bring to life your borrowed-from-the-boys look.
The chilly air says its winter but we’re all about summer here, so slip into this softly striped silk-chiffon shirt from Chloé. This may resemble a pajama top, but it’s actually a chic piece you can don at any event thanks to its trendy epaulettes and cuffs. Choose between a pair of pants and a high-waist skirt, where you can tuck this soft blouse for a more corporate outfit.
Comfortable and cool, Marni’s wide-leg pants are easy to spot from a distance. The mix of black, white, and royal-blue yield a visual adventure that deserves to stand on its own. With that, pair this with solid tops and blazers, and then some statement accessories.
Black and white have always been the hues synonymous to elegance. These Giuseppe Zanotti loafers not only keep your comfortable but also inject some sparkle in your look. Adorned with Swarovski crystals, you’ll be walking in luxury this summer.
Complete your look with a clutch like this Cosma clutch from Jimmy Choo. Get the sartorial attention you deserve with this arm candy in white, chartreuse, and orange. As if the colors aren’t inspiring enough, the gold-tone hardware ups the ante even more. Classy and trendy, this clutch will perhaps make you forget about those oversized tote bags of yours.
Retro never really fades in fashion so this Marc by Marc Jacobs brass bangle is a summer shoo-in. The pink lip prints against the black and white stripes add a playful touch to the silver-tone brass-made bracelet. With this on your wrist, you’re bound to be the picture of effortless style.
