Spotty Stripy Style

Footballs, tennis balls, pitches and courts. All these  spheres and lines are making me think of spots and stripes – and spotty stripy style!

Monochrome spotty stripy style looks brilliant – wear them together if you dare! Perfect for weddings, garden parties, any summer event, this look is the antithesis of all the pastels and florals on-trend this year.

It’s bright and bold – a slick of red lipstick and you’re good to go. It works brilliantly in structured fabrics, but also in more casual styles – jersey bodies work well with structured full skirts. Add a twist with a striped and tie-dyed dress like French Connection’s

Large horizontal stripes work brilliantly on bandeau styles. Vertical stripes are more slimming. If you want subtle – add a nod to stripes and spots on your accessories.
