Shop the Trend: Stripes

One of the trends that seemed to spread like wild fire at the shows this past September – from accessories to outerwear, bathing suits to ballgowns – came in the form of stripes.  They were paired together, thick to thin, with a touch of texture at Thakoon while shown in both bright colors a la Balmain and frequently in black and white like at Altuzarra. They created geometric shapes that complimented a women’s figure and also showed off in wide-legged culottes and menswear inspired trench coats at Tibi and Temperley London. Chanel brought them alive in nautical cozy knits, Tadashi Shoji molded them into elegantly sophisticated silk chiffon gowns while Tanya Taylor applied them to her cheerfully girly aesthetic. So naturally, when a trend proves to be this prominent we always love to put a shopping post together and as we’ve seen this trend trickling into many of the Pre-Fall 2015 collections, clearly this is one of those trends that is here to stay for the entirety of 2015.
