Stripes are an essential this season for every Fashionisto/a wardrobe. Pick up this style in shorts, pants, T-shirts, shoes, bags, cardigans, etc., just make sure you do it fast!
Stripes are synonymous of summer. When I see a great stripped ensemble I immediately think of Barcelona, the fashion capital of Catalonia in Spain or the beautiful Saint Tropez in France – a beautiful sea view and stylish people everywhere!
Not all stripes have to give off a nautical theme though. More often than not you see designers with a classic blue, white and red stripped pattern but not anymore! Now, this trendy design is being reinvented by designers who are using every color imaginable and every design possible – vertical, horizontal, diagonal.
The Fashionisto is wearing a beautiful cardigan from Zara in the classic horizontal stripes, navy blue bermudas from Superdry, navy blue Vans with leather dark brown details. He is also wearing an Armani watch in a dark brown with a complementing his leather bracelet. This Fashionisto attracted my attention immediately and I think he was very brave to start using leather patterns just before starting fall. I was very impressed for his style and certainly how he pulled it off.
It is obvious that in summer a nice pair of sun glasses are essential and this can even be the case as we make our way into the fall. His Ray Bans in a pilot style shinny blue also give him a very summer style. I really was attracted to his backpack in dark brown leather from Gusti-Leder. It was super cool and a must have for this season in campus.
Hint: When wearing stripes make sure to keep a part of your outfit solid. Take advice from this Fashionisto and choose a solid bottom when pairing it with a stripped top. This allows a balance and doesn’t look mismatched.
