Sweet on stripes!

16 Jun 2017

Stripes: enduring, classic and cool. Whatever your age or taste, every stylish wardrobe needs one or two stripey staples!

Always on-point and great with everything, stripes have been a much-loved, timelessly stylish, wardrobe essential for decades.

Coco Chanel, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Audrey Hepburn, Bridget Bardot, Marilyn Monroe and James Dean. What do all these legendary style icons have in common? A love of striped tops!

So, what is it about stripes that makes them so essential to the stylish, well-turned-out lady or gent? They are timeless, yet fresh, simple, yet sophisticated, classic, yet contemporary.

Whether added to jeans or skirts, worn smart or on the weekend, during the day or when you’re enjoying an evening out, stripes can pull an outfit together and add instant and effortless polish.
