There’s nothing that whispers summer more than breaking out the summer stripes from your closet. This season we’re lucky enough to be witnessing a bit of a stripe renaissance¬†in everything from clothes to shoes to bags. So if like me, you’re partial to the odd nod to a nautical theme, or take your homage to the deckchair through the medium of clothes quite literally, then this is the trend for you.

Of course, the Breton stripe is a seasonal no-brainer, but this upcoming summer, why not get a little more inventive with your stripes game and have a bash at working the look with a bit more gusto. Take this J.Crew skirt for example. A gorgeous palette of colours, but when thrown together with the chunky stripe of this fab Rae Feather clutch, the fun level cranks up a notch or two. You can also get the lovely Rae Feather bags and baskets monogrammed which is a fab gifting idea this summer too.

These Tabitha Simmons heels are a few years old and currently on sale at The Outnet (yay!) but there are also plenty of similar looks around and I love the way they complement the stripe in the skirt.

Summer stripes… where to shop

The key to making sure you choose the right summer stripes for you is to think about proportion. If you’re on the petite side, look for stripes which are smaller and thinner. If you’re lucky enough to be blessed with the luxury of height, then the bigger the stripe the better for you. Look for colour block stripes for more impact, or in-your-face bright hues to play up the summer vibe.
