Yes, hello, it’s me banging on about stripes again.
We know Woodstock vibes are in, that flares and burnt orange have returned to the hangers, that suede and suedette (complete with ratty tassels) are back. Stripes, however, are always in. They’re a basic staple. So, how can I argue that they’re suddenly oh-so-extra in? Well, on the most basic level: look at what shops are stocking. Lines are everywhere: in knitted fabrics, in tight pleats, in contrast binding, in square necklines, and in the zig zags of chevron.
I’m obsessed. And therefore obsessively made a Pinterest board just to monitor these 70-esque fashion developments (..and to shop the looks directly). After my Daisy Street disappointment, I was pretty reluctant to invest in a striped piece, but after careful consideration, I finally treated myself to this beauty! I love it, and style it both my blue and black denim a-lines.
What do you think of the 70s looks that have come back into fashion with a vengeance? Are you a stripes fan? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below! xx
