Spring/Summer 2017 Trends: Serious Stripes
Posted on May 07 2017
As we saw in our last blog posts about oversized floral patterns and bright blues, this spring season is all about being bold with color and pattern choices and not being afraid to layer them all together. Next up on the SS17 trend report is a print that you either seriously love or just can't stand and that is stripes! For those of us who love them I bet you were excited to see the total revamp designers gave them this season on the SS17 runway. Sometimes it can be frightening matching multiple prints into one outfit, but hey that’s why we are here to help! Check out our three favorite ways to styles this seriously popular look for this SS17.
Always a classic outfit choice for beach days or relaxing poolside, the sailor stripe look is now a chic outfit choice for your everyday wardrobe. Play with red’s, blue’s, and black for this clean and classy striped look that designers like Petit Bateau have made so easy for you with tons of striped options. Scotch & Sodas boys red and white t-shirt matched with a pair of Petit Bateau blue twill shorts is a comfortable and bold color combo for him. Accessorize this look for him with a, Hugo Boss anchor printed denim bucket hat for a complete look. While Sonia Rykiel black and white sailor cat tank-top paired with matching striped shorts is an effortlessly easy outfit choice for her on a hot summer day.
This is our favorite out of the three and your little fashionista is going to feel and look seriously cool with a look like this. The key to this style is to mix and match and simply take daring choices with colors and stripe direction. Stella McCartney’s pink and white horizontal striped Strawberry tee matched with Little Marc Jacobs Girls blue denim shorts with vertical red stripes is a fierce example of this trend. Add a little glitz to this outfit with a Sonia Rykiel pink or green sequin purse to carry around all her necessities. For boys, Stella McCartney’s blue and white horizontal striped yeti t-shirt matched Scotch & Soda’s blue and white vertical striped shorts go together perfectly for a fresh and trendy look.
Just as the name suggests, we want to add this striped craze into an outfit with just a few hints here and there. Stepping outside the box we are going to start from the bottom up and grab a pair of Sonia Rykiel black and white striped tights or Junior Gaultier girls navy, red and white striped tights. Match either pair easily with any solid or graphic printed dress by Moschino or Marni. Other ways to add this striped trend into a boy or girls wardrobe is through Junior Gailtier striped, canvas slip-on shoes that are perfect for boys or girls! We also have available a bunch of super cute sets for baby’s like Armani’s dressy blue button up and shorts set. The front of the top is a solid light blue while the back is a blue striped pattern for a tasteful way to add this fun pattern to his sophisticated outfit.
