Brought to the fore by the likes of Coco Chanel and Jean Paul Gaultier, stripes and have been a definitive staple in our wardrobes ever since. More recently the likes of Henry Holland and Victoria Beckham have given them a new lease of life, with bold cut about stripes, striped jumpsuits and more.

See how stylist Lulu Wentworth is styling stripes this spring.

Checks and Stripes

CHECKS & STRIPES

Simple, easy and effortless, the magic of this look lies in the mixing of pattern and texture – sometimes hard to achieve, but when it’s done right it packs a punch.

Avoid going overboard by setting bold, spaced out stripes against a more intricate pattern and keep accessories simple: clean suede espadrilles and a delicate longline necklace would work a dream.

Jump Up

JUMP UP

The best thing about  Jumpsuits is that they serve up an entire outfit in one fell swoop, and there’s something undeniably glamorous about them too, reminiscent of movie stars browsing the chicest boutiques of the French Rivieria.

Jumpsuits score big when it comes to being flattering – look out for styles that nip in at the waist. The vertical stripes on this one will make you look taller and slimmer and the crisp white background has a lovely fresh feel.

For this look focus on your accessories – a relaxed blazer and statement necklace are always a good move.

HOW IT’S DONE IN HOLLYWOOD

Do stripes the bold cutabout way for a contemporary take on your spring style – the contrast in colour and the sharp striking stripes give a lovely sporty feel to this feminine dress, and make for a look that will work dressed up or down.

Try pairing yours with a metallic tote and gorgeous neutral hued mules.
