7 striped pieces to scoop and how to style the trend this spring
Fashion is a cyclical beast and the stripes trend is back in a big way for Spring 2017. You may have noticed striped pieces landing at many shops already, and to help you incorporate lines into your look here are a handful of pieces to consider adding to your wardrobe, and inspiration for how to style them.
I'm digging the 90s feel of this shirt, and the layering of a long sleeve shirt underneath is a highly-recommended look. It gives the look "streetwear" meets "Chandler Bing" vibes.
The NY-based brand Saturdays NYC's Crosby Vertical shirt has a casual-cool element to it. I love that the stripes are different widths, and the indigo and ivory combination would work great with rolled up tan chinos this spring.
If you aren't ready to jump deep into stripes, maybe this Rag & Bone cap is the way to get your feet wet. The cap, featuring vertical black and white stripes, will add a little "something" to your everyday look.

The "bowling" shirt and "pajama" shirt are also trends this spring, and this Zara striped shirt combines all of that good stuff into one slick little package. The sky blue colour will be perfect with those summer bleached jeans you're itching to rock.

How nice are these ASOS pinstripe trousers? The navy and white colour combination adds a summer nautical feel, but feel free to dress these up with a "no-sock" dress shoe.
ASOS Pinstripe Trouser, $69.81
Leave it to Parisian brand AMI to add some refined luxury to the classic stripe trend. The navy and burgundy stripes on this shirt compliment each other quite nicely. Be sure to get this a bit oversized in order to achieve the modern "relaxed" drapey look that is everywhere right now.

Alexander McQueen set up McQ in 2006, and it was always meant to be the youthful rebellious counterpart to the late McQueen's main line. This multi-striped bomber exudes the edgy and youthful spirit of the brand and can be the perfect element to immediately elevate an outfit.
