I'm in Madrid at the moment and the shops are full of striped stuff! It seems all they have is navy & white striped dresses, tops, skirts, etc... I simply can't NOT buy anything. But I feel like it's getting too trendy, I don't wanna run around looking like the worst fashion victim only because I wear my standard uniform of navy/white stripes... Posted via Mobile Device
Stripes are a classic, especially in the spring/summer season.
I don't remember a spring without stripes or flowers (especially since the month of May) or a summer without white clothing.
The stripes exit since the day someone dyed a thread with a different color. There are plenty of striped flags and there are teams from all kinds of sports wearing stripes every time they play.
Stripes, especially in navy/white, are a way of saying “hello” to the spring season. It is just the French fisherman’s traditional cloth, the Breton jersey, already appreciated by Coco Chanel and then by Jean Paul Gaulthier.
Yes, Prada has proposed stripes for this season, but for me it is not trendy, but very traditional. Change the color, thickness, position... but it's the same idea.
