Say Hello to the New Generation of Stripes


Starting out this spring season, stripes are having a moment, and it looks like it’s going to get even better. Forget the classic stripes from the past, and start to look forward to fun color clashing combos, big bold graphic takes, sun bleached indigos, and fresh, edgy nautical updates. Also, stripes are beginning to take a detour from being so one directional. Paneled, distorted and broken effects give a modern art look and go back to the graphic look. Feeling like you want a Cali inspired vibe instead? Aside from the bleached out indigo stripes, bleeding colors and ombre effects will have you looking like your ready for some sunshine and surf.

While I’m currently loving takes on these trends in Resort and Spring 2016 collections, from designers such as Rebecca Minkoff, Milly, and MGSM, expect to see more and more designers offer up their versions in the coming seasons.

Whether you want a fun top to brighten up your outfit, or you want to rock some head to toe stripes, all of your options are covered. Not only do these updates work for day-to-day life, they look equally fantastic as part of your resort wardrobe while on a warm destination getaway in the middle of winter. Now the hard part is stopping with just one piece!
