6 Striped Must-Haves We Want Now
After months of sequins, metallics, and sumptuous winter velvets, we’re ready to shed the last season and embrace a new one. Spring calls for lighter layers, and a fresher approach, and we have exactly what you need to get started. Stripes, in all their forms, signify order and classic style, so we’ve rounded up six of the best striped pieces, for your new season shopping list…
1. The shirt, £6/€8
Every girl needs a classic shirt in her ‘drobe. This season, everyone’s fave – the clean and crisp white button front – wins second place to stripes. We love this contrast-pocket number, in shades of sky blue, just team with your best blue jeans, and you’re good to go, girl!
2. The shirtdress, £13/€17
The button-down’s less formal cousin is also coming to the party, this season. So easy, yet formal enough to wear in the office, the shirtdress is one of our all-time faves. Give this go-to the go-ahead for SS17, and don’t forget to seal the deal with stripes, for extra style kudos.
3. The bardot, £6/€8
Off-the-shoulder silhouettes continue into SS17, with a fresh and lightweight appeal, thanks to laundered stripes and light blue hues. Wear with everything from denim cut-offs, to rolled-hem jeans… just make sure it’s got that all-important stripe treatment!
4. The knit, £6/€8
Your fave fine-gauge jumper can always be counted on for transitional times. Layer over shirts when it's cool out, wear alone as it gets warmer, then use as a failsafe waist companion for festival season.
5. The playsuit, £6/€8
Just looking at this off-the-shoulder cutie gets us too excited for summer. Imagine the day when you can wear this without freezing up? Be a total vacay bae this season, and slip on some pool sliders with this totes adorbs stripy playsuit. Finito!
6. The jersey dress, £5/€6
Throw-on-and go is all we want when the sun is shining, so make getting dressed as easy and chic as possible, with this sure-fire winner. Also, how much do we LOVE the no-iron-needed aspect at play, here?
