Stripes v’s Spots

Fashion / April 2, 2018

It’s a battle of spots v’s stripes this spring – the two graphic prints have gone head-to-head, but forget the wistful nostalgia of polka dots and the basic Breton stripe.

The new way to wear these prints is smart, sophisticated and, for extra fashion points, together.


Forgot the Minnie Mouse and childish conations, it’s time to rethink the surprisingly versatile print. Cropping up on the runways of Balenciaga, Self Portrait and Dior, and front row on the street-style set, they offer a masterclass in polka dot perfection – with chiffon dresses paired with trainers to wore head-to-toe even down to accessories.

Forget your basic Breton stripe, while I’ll forever adore the linear print, this season stripes are going bold and bright. Think a rainbow of striped suits, wide-leg trousers, and asymmetric mid-length skirts. Get in line with modern, clean line silhouettes in mixed tones and stripes of all sizes.
