I have always loved stripes and despite them being the 'trend' every Spring/Summer, I wear them all year round. At the moment I'm loving the different coloured stripes that have come out, as opposed to the usual nautical style blue/navy and white.

I'm loving the stripey shorts and skirts from Topshop and am definitely going to be trying to work something similar into my own wardrobe, but perhaps at a cheaper price. In particular, black and white stripes are huge right now but I'm not so sure I could pull of some jeans or leggings. I'm only used to wearing stripes as a top or a dress!

I tend to pair anything stripey with something plain. For instance I wear most of my striped tops with plain skinny jeans or a plain skirt. I always think it's better to play it safe instead of mixing up another pattern in there as well.

What do you all think of stripes? In particular, the new Beetlejuice stripe trend?


  1. I love the stripe trend! I think beetlejuice striped trousers could make someones legs look very very long so I'll probably give them a try! But like you said I'd have to pair it with something plain, I feel like I could get mistaken for a zebra crossing otherwise!


  2. I love this. Really want some jeans like that. Now I know where :D Thank you :D

  3. I will be attempting to rock some stripy shorts in the summer! X

  4. I love the striped skirts! I quite like the beetlejuice style stripes but not sure that I could pull them off!
