'How To Wear' Spring Challenge - Bold Stripes

This Spring we've got some huge, daring and fun trends to look forward to and VoucherCodes.co.uk have challenged me again to come up with three outfits based on one of Spring's hottest trends - Bold Stripes.

I took part in a VoucherCodes.co.uk challenge a while ago about how to wear cashmere and the best places to buy cashmere on the highstreet, and loved doing it so was thrilled to be asked to take part in this challenge too. I'm a huge fan of stripes anyway, but I think after seeing the Marc Jacob's NYFW Spring 13 show we all got very, very excited about stripes.

Set to be THE trend of Spring/Summer 2013, stripes will come in many styles, colours, thicknesses and textures. The dominant stripe trend however is bold, graphic and monochrome and as you may have noticed already is all over the highstreet.

Shops doing stripes very well include New Look, River Island, Topshop, Zara and H&M. Mixing 60s silhouettes with a grungey, 90s vibe, these stripes are in your face and a far cry from classic Spring pastels and girly sundresses. I love that we're seeing a fresh approach to summer style and these hard working classics (when do stripes ever go out of style?!) will update your look for the coming season and many more.

Have I talked you into trying bold stripes yet? Great! Here's how I like to wear stripes and the three items I've bought to help create three seperate looks that won't require you to hit up your credit cards but will help you nail this season's hottest trend.

  1. Loving the black and white striped shirt. I can imagine it working well with jeans. I also really like the stripey skirt, it's very funky. I would wear it with a denim jacket.
