We love a piece that makes an impact and stripes simply never go out of style. Whether it’s monochromatic or a colourful fusion, there’s just something so chic about stripes that draws the eye.
Stripes should be a mainstay in every Emma Wallace Woman’s wardrobe, but if you’re looking for inspiration on how to wear them well, then read on as we explain more.
We love using a striped piece to build a look around. By putting it at the heart of your outfit you can then layer over clean, neutral pieces that help the stripes sing. Our Ione Tee is the perfect centre to shape your style around. Wear with the pastel perfect Lopez Blazer and Amy Shorts to compliment and create a look guaranteed to get you noticed. Wear with oversized black rimmed glasses and chunky loafers for the office or rock a bright pink lip, our Astrid & Miyu Textured Oval Link T-Bar Necklace and barely there black stiletto sandals to hit the bar.
If you’re looking to really make a splash then go for all over stripes. Our Aster Dress is the perfect pick for those seeking maximum impact. Wear with sliders and clashing coloured socks to show you’re the coolest girl on the block. Want to go even bigger? Add on our Ribbon Headband and you’ll be a vision in purple.
We love stripes for their unique and contrasting designs. Clashing stripes in different formats adds intrigue to an outfit. We love wearing our Lilac Top and Delphine Shorts together for instant ‘look at me’ appeal. The horizontal stripes on the short contrast against the diagonal design of the top to create a matching moment with so much drama. Layer over our Fah Fah Jacket and wear with chunky white sneakers by day, then switch to high heeled black courts and bare shoulders by night.
We know that all over stripes might be intimidating to some. Wearing stripes selectively on either your top or bottom half whilst keeping the other half neutral is the perfect way to make impact in a more understated way. We love wearing our Violet Dress under our Buddleja Jumper to let the pencil skirt knit really shine. Likewise, our striped Ione Tee looks gorgeous worn with our clean, pastel Sienna Trousers. Add on a pair of oversized sunnies and a cute raffia bag and you’re ready to own the summer in style.
If you love stripes but don’t feel bold enough just yet to add them to your main wardrobe, then why not dip your toe in with accessories? The perfect way to add some flair to an otherwise neutral outfit. Our Ribbon Scarf is a must-have! Wear it with our Posy Shirt and a pair of white jeans for a look that feels as if you should be driving around Capri in a soft-top vintage car.
Now you know how to wear them, why not invest in the trend that never goes out of style! Check out our Blueberry edit and get ready to earn your fashion stripes.
