Take a new line on strips!

How to earn your stripes this season…


Stripes are everywhere this season, from blazers and tees to shorts, dresses and trousers. Go nautical or keep it classy… the choice is yours!

Joules always comes up trumps when it comes to stripes. The playful Boardwalk skirt, above, is the ideal beach cover up. Made from soft jersey, it’s a steal at £24.99. Their Riviera dress, below, is also great value at £34.95, and comes in navy, red, white and blue. Pull it on after a swim before heading to the beach bar!


For something a bit dressier, Part II’s Lyda trousers, below, are the business. Wide legs are the ultimate in cool this summer, and the vertical stripes elongate the leg. At £89.95 they’re more pricey but totally versatile – try pairing with flats for pure summertime chic, or dressing up with wedges for a wedding or garden party.

For tops, we’ve got all number of classic Breton stripes but for something different we rather love the Coastal vest from White Stuff, below. With its cheery tangerine print and cap sleeves, it’s a steal at £35.
