Horizontal, vertical; in nautical navy or just barely there - there's no denying that stripes are a certainty come summertime. With the sun finally showing some kindness, we're opting for easy separates and lightweight dresses to see out the warmer months in style.
In bright, cool tones and flattering cuts, these retro-inspired designs are running the show.
Featuring a dark near-black navy stripe, doubled up for a twist on classic nautical, the Sahara Striped Shorts are oh-so flattering. Style simply with cotton t-shirts and vests for your next sun-drenched escape.
Sleeveless, high neck and with an offbeat boxy fit, the Hollywood Stripe Dress features a broken grey stripe reminiscent of 1960's beach style. Sling on an over the shoulder raffia bag and retro sunglasses for an enviable post-sunbathe, pre-dinner holiday look.
The versatility of a soft, lightweight shirt knows no bounds throughout summer - throw on the Malibu Stripe Shirt over a bikini at the beach, pair with relaxed denim at weekends or style with smart trousers at work to keep cool when the A/C (inevitably) isn't up to scratch.
Every style virtuoso knows that thin, vertical stripes are endlessly elongating. Get your fix of fashion's most flattering pattern with the Santa Fe Button Stripe Dress. Toughen its pretty, demure appearance with chunky black sandals for a sunny day exploring the city.
