A pattern is forming here: Stripes making a bold statement! To me, nothing is cleaner than the sharp, crisp line of a stripe. Taking cues from modernist architecture and continuing the colorblocking trend, stripes have now taken over summer fashions. In the boutiques they are on everything from beach cover-ups to tailored blazers. More evidence of the trend popped up yesterday when I saw a young woman going to lunch wearing a smart monochromatic black and white striped blouse. The next day another woman was seen wearing a black and white striped sun dress in the supermarket.The color scheme seems to be mostly black and white, but pastels in pink, light blue, and green feel right for summer. Navy and red stripes make a classic nautical theme. It won’t be long before stripes make their way into home accessories – they have big impact for such a simple pattern!
