Trend Watch: Stripe City


Admittedly, I don’t think stripes EVER go out of style…but they *do* tend to crop up a lot more as spring lines start rolling into stores, and this year is no exception. Below is a collection of stripey items for all you classic fashionistas out there.

Stripe CityFrom L to R, Top to Bottom

Men’s Micro Stripe Tees – $12.94 @ Old Navy: Proof that stripes can be a subtle look – these comfy cotton tees have subtle white stripes between bolder blocks of colour, like teal, red or purple.

Dvala Queen Duvet Cover – $34.99 @ IKEA: Even your housewares can get in on the act with this fun and festive warm-hued duvet set. A perfect choice for a guest bedroom.

Stripe Cardigan – $19 @ Joe Fresh: Liven up an otherwise basic outfit with a neutral striped cardigan. A swell pick for a friend’s birthday that doesn’t require you to know their precise size.

A5 3-Subject Stripe & Peonies Notebook – $7.95 @ Indigo: Jot down your thoughts in this chic, springy journal that oozes a certain je ne sais quoi. Also available in blue.

Hudson’s Bay Millennium Stripe Mug – $12: Hudson’s Bay has given their classic primary-hued stripe motif a modern makeover with a lineup of ‘Millennium’ pieces that are made of striking neutral metallics. Introduce someone to the line with this individually gift boxed mug.

Striped Full Midi Skirt – $79.95 @ Zara: I’ve seen this skirt in person and it is lovely. Fun fact about multi-hued skirts – they go with everything. Just pair a basic or textured top that compliments or plays off one of the skirt colours and you’re set!

Coral Stripe Women’s Classics – $65 @ TOMS: There’s something effortlessly beachy about these cream and coral-striped kicks. A perfect pick as we sail into summer.

Striped Beach Bag – $31 @ Nordstrom: Stripes and nautical often go hand-in-hand, but I wanted to showcase items that used this classic pattern but maybe weren’t so ahoy matey! That being said there’s still plenty of nautical love out there, as per this classic navy and white striped tote bag.

Boys’ Striped Polo – $14.95 @ The Children’s Place: Another classic application of stripes is to preppier looks, like this cute rugby-inspired top. Available in a range of vibrant, boy-friendly hues for that prepster in training.
