How to style the latest print trend

Designers went wild for stripes on the Spring/Summer 2022 catwalks, with everything from monochrome to multi-coloured – in understated striped shirts and bold, disco-tastic dresses.

With summer in full swing, it’s the perfect time to try out the trend, whether you’re looking for vacation wear, weekend outfits or the perfect party dress.

Here’s how to incorporate stripes into your summer wardrobe…

Nautical

As seen at Wales Bonner and JW Anderson, navy blue and white nautical stripes never go out of style.

This season, the classic Breton long-sleeved top gives way to cute, summery tank tops, tees and co-ords. Pair with white jeans and espadrilles for a chic seaside look.

The seaside inspiration continues with vertical deckchair-style stripes. Flowing dresses caused a stir at Schiaparelli and Tory Burch, while striped separates were layered at Jil Sander and Kenneth Ize.

Embrace the contrasting runway look by pairing contrasting tops and bottoms, or keep it simple with a striped midi dress and tonal accessories.

Always a stylish combination, black and white stripes were seen on everything from sassy mini dresses (Balmain and Courrèges) to sweeping dresses (Erdem and Tory Burch).

Take your pick from bodycon dresses (for work or play) to casual linen day dresses.

Going the retro route for Spring/Summer 22, Fendi models Brandon Maxwell and Jil Sander walked the runway in bright, dramatic dresses.

The coolest way to wear formal wear this summer, a striped maxi dress in bright or pastel hues is perfect for weddings and garden parties.
