STRIPE! STRIPE! STRIPE!

Whether horizontal, vertical, thin, thick, black and white or in living colors, stripes make a graphic statement, which has been always known to all. However, sometimes we get bored of wearing stripes, considering they are too common, plain, or similar in patterns to make a unique statement. The truth, we’ve got used to the head-to-toe monochrome stripe looks reinterpreted by Marc Jacobs from his S/S 2013 collection. Thus, we expect more on the innovation of stripes.


Generally speaking, there are three kinds of stripes impressing me most from all the spring/summer 2013 collections. To begin with, Michael Kors' little trick of blocking the stripes in contrasted color patterns as decorations caught my eye at the first sight. They look modern, clean, and are seemingly having a story to tell. Then we can’t have overseen the indispensable Dolce & Gabbana, which the 50s spirits and unconventional stripes of Sicilian style are dexterously combined. And still, Jonathan Saunders never fails to blow us away by playing with a large range of holographic fabrics on stripes.
Alas, stripes are cool. And as for those invented ones——superb! It’s alluring that one can probably embrace both the summer easiness and spectacular designs when dressing in those stripes garments.

ITEM ON THE LIST  MARC JACOBS striped sequin-embellished jersey top / DOLCE & GABBANA striped pencil skirt,dress, pointed flats,pointed heels,shoulder bags, shorts, blazer, and sunglasses/ UNKNOWN striped pillow /EQUIPMENT sloane striped silk sweater / J.CREW cotton-blend mini skirt/JASON WU striped crochet-knit cotton-blend sweater / ÉTOILE ISABEL MARANT malo striped cotton-blend sweater /BY MALENE BIRGER trille striped cotton pencil skirt/ J.CREW pastel Vienna striped cashmere sweater/ JONATHAN SAUNDERS issy holographic striped crepe pencil skirt/ BAND OF OUTSIDERS blue and white striped blazer




As for my ensemble, I’m aiming at constructing a sense of casual wearing but meanwhile with a sneak peak of edge. Thus, I pick the blue and white stripes suit from WWW.DANDYINNE.COM, which is made of linen and has unconventional stripe pattern. I have to say I’m so into the unpolished touching of linen fabric, and moreover, it is light and porous enough to breathe the summer freshness. For the accessorizing part, a vintage LAVIN printed tie is effortlessly necked around the collar as necklace to flaunt a sense of humor chic. Last but not least, my favorite hand-drawn floral bracelets are definitely included to echo the casual spirit.
