It is time to update your wardrobe with summer’s most colourful trend
If you are in love with the rainbow-stripe sneakers from Gucci’s Cruise 17, you will adore this season’s hottest trend – colorful stripes. Forget black and white because stripes are now bright and cheerful. Seen in all colors and forms at various SS 16 shows, these candy-colored lines will definitely elevate wardrobe basics
Runway edit | Bold, horizontal stripes were seen on knit dresses at Tommy Hilfiger and Max Mara. At Ralph Lauren and Gucci, asymmetrical stripes featured on evening gowns and pleated skirts. Dior and Prada gave a fun update to basic separates with thick vertical stripes. At Salvatore Ferragamo, striking graphic stripes were seen on off-shoulder dresses. Even Indian designers like Aneeth Arora, Ruchika Sachdeva, and Pankaj & Nidhi showcased the vibrant linear patterns in their collections. Take a hint, girls!
Style edit | The best way to sport colorful stripes is by pairing them with white. This delivers a clean and sharp style statement while pairing them with black makes the ensemble look more serious and formal. If you want to commit to the trend from head to toe, go for a coordinated set with interesting cut-outs (think off-shoulder top and midriff-cut maxi dresses). For a totally eclectic, bold look pair print and pattern together, taking inspiration from Chanel and Gucci. If you want to go a step further team colorful stripes with classic Breton ones.
Our verdict | We all need something fresh to break the monotony in our wardrobe and colorful stripes do just that. Though vibrant ones may not appeal to everyone, they’re a fabulous print to add a twist to your blacks, whites, and greys.
