How to wear stripes: spring 2022’s cheerful fashion trend | Fashion

For SS22, designers played with different colours, textures and stripe sizes to create an impact, from bold, bright stripes at Brandon Maxwell, Emporio Armani and Christian Siriano, to a fringed woven striped dress at Chloé. And you can’t talk stripes and not mention Paul Smith (above): multicoloured stripes have been at the heart of the brand from the start. This season they were mixed with sunflower prints and contrasted with a palette of sun-bleached lemon and rich terracotta.

Successful stripe-wearing is all in the styling. Take one striped piece as a focal point. The shirt is a great starting point: Kitri’s frilled shirt (1 below), or La Redoute’s long-sleeved version (8 below), are both perfect to style with denim from wide-leg jeans to a mini skirt, finished with chunky loafers.

A diagonal wraparound stripe can be easier to wear. Stine Goya’s Scharla jumper (7 below) in pastel hues looks great with crisp white wide-leg trousers. We Are Thought’s pink and white Breton (£39.95) is a fresh take on the nautical trend, as is Boden’s contrast sleeve in pink and red (£35). Or go all-in like Lashana Lynch (left) in a fully striped ensemble for maximum wow factor. Asos’s yellow and white striped seersucker mini dress with puff sleeves and a high neck (£85) is the perfect sundress and can be dressed up for an event with gold accessories. Meanwhile the quickest way to cheer up an outfit is a colourful striped bag. Oxfam’s roomy shopper (£4.99), and Oklahoma’s market bags make the supermarket run joyful and will double as beach or picnic bags.
