They say that stripes are the wildcards in the universe of prints – and who am I to deny? Really, if there is a universal pattern this is it, especially when it appears in thin and bicolor versions – like black and white or marine and off white. However, next summer the multicolored and impactful versions are the big bets!
The mid 70s footprint has everything and it is clear that brands have started to invest in the trend for the next season. Oh, and no basic and neutral colors, okay? The print is revitalized with at least 3 shades in each piece and much thicker stripes!
Unlike what we are used to seeing out there, the versions of the vertical and diagonal stripes are much higher than the more classic horizontal ones. In addition to enhancing the silhouette, this type of patterning also brings a more fun touch to the looks, especially when it appears in unique pieces such as overalls and, of course, dresses.
Did you like the idea of a more colorful look, but still afraid to invest in an impactful piece? Start by trying out looks with blouses, tops, skirts or even pants with slightly more sober tones. Combining is super easy: just repeat one of the shades of the stripes on the other piece ?
Now, if you loved the trend and want to play with the look Rainbow with a lot of style, opt for very contrasting models with stripes in different directions. Is this more loaded look or not the face of summer?
WHERE TO FIND?
There is no shortage of options for all styles, see? I made a very eclectic selection of pieces, colors and patterns to enter the trend without fear ?
