Its no secret to anyone that follows us on social media that we have a little but of a thing for stripes right now. We know its not exactly a revelation nor did we invent the common-or-garden stripe, but we are certainly enjoying striped garms at the moment thats for sure! Need a little stripe-friendly wardrobe inspo? Look no further, we have picked out some of our favourites both high-street and high-end from SS17 and Pre-Fall 17 collections that are shoppable now, so here goes…
We have a huge brand-crush on Reformation, so when we were in LA we couldn’t not stop in to lust over absolutely everything! The Brisbane Jumpsuit (above left) caught our eye and we have been repping it ever since. If you haven’t shopped at Reformation we cannot recommend it highly enough, the cut and quality is always flattering and it feels so good on. If you are shopping from the UK, import taxes may apply but its so worth it…right? Here is how the jumpsuit looks on the Reformation website:
On to the high street and to this cool red and white striped multi-position shirt from Zara (above right) from their Pre-Fall 17 collection. This one is one of those double, or triple whammy items that can be worn a few different ways, it has secret straps within the shirt so can be worn as a strappy top with the sleeves tied around like below and we actually really love this idea.
Next up is another unbeatable Zara find that definitely needs a little mention although we believe its virtually sold out in Zara stores (but we have seen a similar colourway floating about, with navy instead of green, so check your local Zara store!)
On to shoes, and these have got to be one of our favourite recent wardrobe additions! These colourful sandals from Dune London (click to shop) are what dreams are made of, we couldn’t resist getting matching pairs as we both wanted them in equal amounts, and they haven’t disappointed, Dune London shoes are always great quality, note these run on the large(r) side, and since I (Olivia) often size down half a size for heels from my awkwardly-in-between-sizes 5.5, I opted for a 5 and they are perfect. Alice is always a 4 however, and so she got a 4, also perfect.
