1. Classic Nautical Style
Always a winner, especially for holiday wear is a striped tee shirt but instead of traditional blue and white try red or green and maybe a wider stripe. Team with jeans or shorts and maybe flat sandals or plimsolls.
Worn with a top that echoes the colour of the stripe and in a cotton fabric, ideal for holiday wear. Choose a relaxed style, not tight fitting. With trousers opt for a narrow stripe to avoid the deck-chair look, and a top in a plain colour.
Dresses are always popular in the summer and a maxi dress with a thin vertical stripe will give you a really long-line silhouette. Or maybe a pretty red and white striped skater dress with red accessories? Dresses are great for any occasion, and this year’s stripes always look really summery.
If striped clothes are not you, for how about accessories? Perfect for a beach-bag or canvas footwear; pumps or sandals. Accessories can add a touch of this trend without feeling too full on.
