So the sales are coming to an end and the shops are filling up with exciting newness, although the sale rail for me is always most exciting when it nears the end of it’s life, it’s where I always manage to hunt out some super bargains.
The new collections floating around are transitional pieces, you know those items that help us get though the weird in-between bit before the new season trends really arrive. So with that in mind we’re all starting to think about what will be hot for spring/summer.
I love looking at the new trends but when I shop I really want to wear my new purchases ASAP, so finding buy now wear now items that will also see me through the seasons’ next big trends is important, and cost effective.
One SS17 trend seen across the catwalks was stripes, I’m not just talking lovely nautical, Breton style stripes, nope, big, bold and even a bit Beetle Juice!

I know lots of people avoid stripes for fear of looking larger, but a stripe worn vertically will actually enhance as it elongates. Of course all the inspo images are of models but take another look at how flattering a vertical stripe is.
What I love about the stripes this spring summer is how they are also incorporating other trends, prints and styles. You’ll find a stripes with camo or animal prints flowing through, stripes with a boho vibe and of course the smart stripe that is perfect for work.
Finally if you’re quick and make the most of the sale rail you can nab yourself a bargain before the full price stripes hit the shelves. Take a peak below at some of the super stripeiness available on our high street now and coming soon.
