New Trend To Try – Stripes With Attitude For Spring

Stripes for spring trend

Welcome to the April fashion issue of pattern heaven. As you may have noticed, we’re shiny and new. And as the seasons are changing so are the fashion trends too! In the spirit of my editorial philosophy, “mix and match,” I’m going to keep things chic. Time and time again a pattern resurfaces on the catwalk, graces the red carpet with a bang, and parades the street style wardrobes of the uber-fashionable. This season has been no exception, with the likes of celebrities hitting refresh on the time-honored trend of stripes with a nod to color.

Even though spring is here and summer is just right around the corner, as fashion lovers we tend to have a love hate relationship with trends. Now is the time to start considering trying something new with the style change. You may think in your head that you can’t pull these looks off but chances are you just might surprise yourself in a positive way.

Try The Trend Out

They might be unforgiving at times, but thanks to the new wave of bold print and graphic color, stripes have been given a new life reworked as they were into bold strands of color. Believe it or not, stripes have been a favored summer staple. When the sunshine arrives summer peaks it’s head. This retro pattern that also gives a modern take to style, is becoming highly versatile for all climates and season’s alike. When you mix stripes into your everyday wardrobe, you are able to introduce the trend without feeling overwhelmed.

Bold and bright has paved the way, venturing into revamping the classic. Fun and flirty crop tops paired with tailored printed trousers provides and elegant appeal with a forties silhouette. The accessories were also enlivened: clutch bags, platform wedges, when cast in chunky stripes. Making an impact with accessories is to go very minimal. That way the main focus is on your gorgeous pattern.

Introduce A Little At A Time

Alternatively, if you’re a little too scared to take on the new stripes trend, you can work your way up and introduce little bits of the print with a blouse being the star of the show, a pair of trousers, long flowing dress, or a great handbag.

Once you are feeling more comfortable with the stripes then just add the volume.

To earn your fashion stripes and showcase the print with attitude this spring, you should be brave and banish the shy look and go as bold as you can be.
