What’s the hottest trend in street style this spring?

What’s the hottest trend in street style this spring?

Stripes. Obviously. Here’s how you can rock this mid-season style.

* Throw a cropped jacket over black and white mini. Add ballet flats and a slouchy clutch and you’ve got a perfect look for a spring weekend.

* Wear an easy fit striped t-shirt tucked casually into your black skinnies. Top it off with a fitted blazer and killer heels for a versatile work/dinner/drinks outfit.

* Dress down a taffeta evening skirt by tucking a striped tank top into it. Wear it with wedges to show you really don’t care about wearing a night time fabric in the day time.

* Sport a stripey one piece in a retro cut on the beach this summer. Don’t forget a giant swoopy brimmed hat and a slick of bright red lippie.

* Slip a nude trench over your stripes. The ultimate in French chic style.

    I am actually loving colour block. 

    It is funny you mention the stripes/taffeta skirt option – I just did that last week with an old CUE skirt! 🙂

    Stripes are eternally stylish in my mind. I am always obsessed with them and always will be ♥

      Me too, I have to be careful though as I’m broad shouldered and they can really accentuate that.

     Dear Sir/Madam,

    I have the pleasure to brief you on our Data Visualization software
    “Trend Compass”.

    TC is a new concept in viewing statistics & trends in an animated way
    by displaying in one chart 5 axis (X, Y, Time, Bubble size & Bubble
    color) instead of just the traditional X and Y axis. Discover trends
    hidden in spreadsheets. It could be used in analysis, research,
    presentation etc. In different business sectors, to name a few we
    have Deutsche Bank, NBC Universal, RIM,  Vanguard Institutional
    Investor, Ipsos, Princeton University as our clients.

    You can download a trial version. It has a feature to export
    EXE,PPS,HTML and AVI files. The most impressive is the AVI since you
    can record Audio/Video for the charts you create.
