Candy stripes, thin stripes, pinstripes – whatever you want to call them, the pattern is taking over the fashion world! Our editor Mei Ling shows us how she styles the stripes from Monday to Friday.
Can you really wear stripes five days a week? Spotted all over the runways this year, we’ve seen style icons Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne and more work the stripes on runways and out and about. After all, the pattern is totally wearable anywhere, whether at the office, weekend brunch or the beach. Mei Ling took to the challenge of trying out this trend every day for work, and here’s how she fared!
#1 Monday Blues
Mei Ling adds detail to Monday’s striped look with the knotted stripe trend, which The Blonde Salad reports as a Summer ’17 style that is “so simple, yet so feminine – the perfect hack to look interesting, but not overdressed”. To keep her look work-casual, Mei Ling styles her blouse with black peg-leg trousers, but as a fan of bright hues, she adds her signature quirky flair to the outfit with these sunny yellow criss-cross mules and seahorse-print Kate Spade handbag!
