There’s one trend that’s making a strong run already during this pre-fall season, and it’s full of colors we don’t tend to see past the spring and summer months. Which, in my opinion, makes the trend incredibly refreshing. It’s also surprisingly pulling me towards brighter hues and a rainbow of shades most of us don’t tend to blend. That trend, my friends, is colored stripes, and it’s one I’m fully on board with. It’s a fun play on the classic, French style stripe that I’m forever a fan of, and one simple way to spice up your fall wardrobe.
I will say it’s a trend one must be careful with. Mixing an array of colors can go from chic to tragic (or 1984) quickly, so this trend isn’t about mixing every color under the rainbow and saying ‘fin’. Designers like Alice McCall and Milly are showing us how to pull of the trend in a fresh, beautiful way – and I’m quickly following suit. Even more affordable brands like Lovers & Friends are bringing colored stripes into their inventory in a very welcoming way, so it’s an easy trend to play around with. If you’re not completely sold on it, not to fret – simply go with one of the more budget-friendly options.
