Stripes, stripes and more stripes

I sat at the Preen by Thornton Bregazzi show¬†last September and thought wow. This is really going to catch on. And what I meant was, not referring to their incredible collection which always delights, but the whole stripes thing. It was the first time that I sat up and went, ok, this is a real super trend. Not exactly the easiest thing to wear, the stripe has taken on a new more wearable form this year. It’s less about the horizontal and more about the diagonal and panel. I love this, as it will suit more body shapes and not make us look like zebras so much. And there’s another point. It’s not only monochrome, Preen also went for red and white, and blue and white which plays on breton and nautical, but it’s summery and less severe than black and white which can be a bit overwhelming to the eyes.

    Absolutely love the striped look – it has a very 1960s vibe about it. Really like that monochrome bangle – it would be great with a black dress or white jumpsuit… Great picks here. Thanks for sharing. xoxox
