One trend that will never go out of fashion is stripes, especially in summer. Even on a typical rainy August day like today, you can’t go wrong with stripes. When worn in the right way to suit your figure stripes can do magical things! A vertical striped pattern (e.g the jumpsuit or trousers) will give you added length, whilst horizontal stripes (e.g the off-the-shoulder top) can slim your silhouette.
I’ve picked out some of my favourite striped pieces on the high-street at the moment. I particularly love the retro high-waisted bikini from Topshop, just wish I was going on holiday and had an excuse to buy it! Some of the pieces I’ve featured would work well styled together, like the shorts and jumper, but be wary of over-doing the stripes – you don’t want to give anyone a headache when they look at you…
