Big, Bold Stripes Are Here

According to Harper’s Bazaar’s February 2016 issue, big and bold stripes are all the rage this spring.  I have compiled this collage with bold stripes with everything from pants to ponchos and caftans to shoes and bags.  Obviously, you would not want to blend too much of a striped pattern so you would want to pair these pieces with plenty of neutrals.

My favorite piece from this collage is the Carolina Rose Crossing Striped Turtleneck Caften (#8).  I think it is the most colorful piece and, therefore, the most versatile.  I also love the colors!  They are bright and cheery just like spring.

  1. The Gucci bag and the Dolce&Gabbana are so appropriate for summer! The long, bold stripes seem to be making their way into Fall ’16 as well. 🙂 I totally don’t have anything in my closet to fit the bill…yet.

    1. Happy Shopping! Have fun filling your closet with new and exciting bold stripes. Come to think about it – I don’t really have any stripes in my wardrobe either. I need to power shop and add some color and dimension in the form of stripes to my wardrobe. I suppose the designers know what we’re lacking each season!
