Stripe Guide: Supersized or Mix and Match?

Stripe Guide: Supersized or Mix and Match?

As spring has begun with full bloom in most of Europe, it is time to start considering new trends to flaunt. It is an ideal time to turn all the heads your way with super sized, graphic stripes which can be vertical, horizontal, and mix and match of both. Various fashion giants are working to bring this trend into lime light, including Dolce & Gabbana and Prada.

Dip a toe in this trend with the inspirations listed below and welcome the season with a fresh start.

Dolce & Gabbana

Dolce & Gabbana combined this seasoned style with striking patterns layered on top of stripes which gave a hip and grunge effect to the entire outfit. Placed strategically over brightly colored stripes were printed and embroidered motifs of different scales and sizes to give the outfit that extra oomph. They accessorized their dresses with over-sized retro cat eyes, which were striped as well.

Jonathan Saunders

Jonathan Saunders was all about graphic stripes with blocks and blocks of contrasting shades piled up against one another to give a three dimensional feel to the entire outfit. The brand kept minimal accessories with a bold handcuff and barely-there sandals.

Max Mara

Max Mara sported an androgynous look in striped with boat neck and oversized stripy coats paired with organic patterns and pastels accents. Makeup was kept dramatic with bold and bright eyeshades and pulled back, messy hair. The brand’s accessories included big totes and high sandals to give a happy go lucky feel to the entire ensemble.

Missoni

Missoni’s stripes were a sharp contrast to Max Mara’s. They were predominantly feminine with non fussy styling and accessories. Make-up however, was graphic and bold with block eyeshades and sleek pulled back hair. The twist in Missoni’s ramp was the stripy sneakers models sported with their long, flowing, striped dresses.

Prada

Prada stole the show with extremely graphic vertical stripes of yellows, blacks, greys, browns and oranges. The models sported striped bags, and shoes with statement earrings and sunglasses. Also, what set them apart was the use of lacey tie-arounds to soften the bold stripes.
