This summer we are reinventing the stripes, not to mention the classic t-shirt with navy stripes. Irina Markovits, style consultant, gives us a few suggestions.
A striped shirt will become the most worn piece of your wardrobe this summer. A classic cut version will be nicely integrated into an office outfit, especially if you match it with a pair of modern, high waist trousers. You can also use it in a relaxed, casual outfit, by rolling up the sleeves and matching it with a denim skirt. In addition, this summer cotton poplin dresses and skirts, with blue and white stripes are a key pieces and can be worn at the office (with a suit jacket) or during the weekend (with a denim jacket).

Dare to wear stripes in a different manner. Don’t be afraid to wear wide or multi-coloured stripes, it will be a pleasant change for any type of outfit. Vertical stripes create the illusion of longer legs and a slender silhouette, that’s why I advise you to wear striped trousers. Match them with a blouse with fine and discreet stripes, so that the outfit is not exuberant; the secret when wearing “double” prints, is that both pieces should have a common colour!

Dream in COLOURS
If you already have classic stripes clothing (white-blue, white-black, white-red) in your wardrobe, update your style and wear pieces in multi-coloured stripes or unexpected colours. White and yellow striped trousers or a blue and turquoise striped overcoat are easy to wear during the weekend and matches well with denim, white, green olive.
