How To Style Summer Stripes

French Girl Magic


When it comes to styling stripes, it’s safe to say our southern neighbours are the champions. Parisian women always know how to wear stripes in an effortlessly charming way, no matter what the occasion is. You can steal their look by sticking to horizontal stripes in classic colour combinations, and pairing them with sleek accessories and clean silhouettes.

Vertical Integration


You’re not alone if you automatically think of horizontal styles when it comes to stripes. And while we love a good horizontal stripe (I mean, we did just give it praise), there’s a certain sharpness and refinement to vertical stripes. Take them from the boardroom to the beach or bar by adding light coloured denim and playful accessories.

Go Bold or Go Home


Who says stripes have to be limited to traditional colour schemes? Summer is the perfect time to experiment with pastel or rainbow coloured hues. These eye-catching iterations are sure to brighten up any summer gathering and make you the life of the party.

Beachy Delight


Heading to the beach? Whether you’re lounging by the ocean or strolling along the boardwalk, stripes are the perfect choice to compliment the seaside vibes. Slip into some striped shorts or don a breezy striped dress that works as a cover-up or a sundress. Pair it with a wide-brimmed hat and oversized sunglasses to complete the look.

Summer is all about making memories, and with stripes as your companion, you’ll be sure to create some unforgettable fashion moments!
