One of the most versatile trends that pops up every season is striping and SS16 is no exception. The catwalks were a buzz with bold, sharp stripe detail including the collections of Prada and Jonathan Saunders. Some experimented with chopped and scattered lines whilst others went for classic stripe detailing. A favourite is the contrasting shades of black and white or fashionably known as monochrome stripes.
Each element of print and colour, goes hand in hand in creating looks that suit everyone. As part of the recent Bath in Fashion bloggers event, one of our styling tasks included picking out some SS16 trends that are huge for the season, you can see my style challenge post here. Ours included stripes and brights and I’ve put together some inspiration on the stripes element of the task.
Monochrome stripes for SS16 gives a great look whether you’re looking for casual daywear or dressing it up for a night out.
