Head-To-Toe Stripes: Springs Latest Fashion Trend For Women

Mar 01 2018by Kate Russell

With the onset of the spring season comes lots of exciting fashion moments. From brand-new florals in flowing maxi dresses to deliciously creamy, pastel-coloured tailored suits and not forgetting all the new accessories. However, this week we’re looking at one of the bolder trends for the start of the next warm season and that is stripes; head-to-toe.

Working fabulously for the modern-day, stylish modest dresser, stripes can be bright and beautiful or subtle and demure. Either way, and whether you match-up or clash colours to create your look, stripes in the top, jacket, trouser and skirt need to be teamed together for total fashion points.

The Spring ’18 runways were rocked by a montage of stripe creations. Fendi’s show saw Kaia Gerber, the newest supermodel of the moment and Cindy Crawford’s very own daughter, strutting down the catwalk in an oversized midi skirt suit with charcoal and rust orange diagonal stripes. Giorgio Armani brightened everyone’s day with a red and hot pink trouser suit with longline, oh-so-cool jacket. We also saw super summery and striped looks from labels, such as Zero + Maria Cornejo and Carolina Herrera, proving that when it comes to the stripe trend, all colours apply.
