Stripe Hype


Horizontal, vertical, chunky or fine, we love us some stripes at Vavavoom.  An easy and chic wardrobe staple, these lined lovelies work all year round in a variety of wardrobes.

And best of all, our favourite celebs are bending all the rules this season to mix stripes on stripes to give them a fresh new feel.

This look is easy to achieve if you follow these simple rules:


1. Mix different stripe widths a la Olivia Palermo’s front row look at this year’s Paris Fashion Week.   She paired a wide-leg trouser and loose fitting shirt of a contrasting width and boom – perfection.


2. Blend thick with thin to achieve a look as stylish as Sienna Miller’s double stripe skirt and blouse.


3. Mix horizontal and vertical or colour and texture as shown by Jamie Chung.

Plus there’s no need to save your best stripes for the yacht, here’s our guide on how to be the star in stripes at the airport, in college or for any special occasion.
