3 Retro-Inspired Ways We're Rocking Stripes This Summer
Don’t call it a revival—with so many iconic ways to wear stripes, it’s no wonder this staple never goes out of style. But this summer, try breaking away from the expected nautical look in favor of one of these three retro-inspired designs instead! Here's how we're wearing stripes this season:
With high-waisted pants
You know what was great about 1940s fashion? A largely-female workforce started wearing pants for the first time. Between high waists, block heels and cat-eye sunglasses, 40s-era glam is having a major moment this summer—and we love incorporating vertical stripes into the trend to elongate those legs.
As a way to accentuate our curves
The Mid-century beauties that touted hour-glass figures inspired a wave of form-fitting dresses and pin-up silhouettes that became iconic. Try horizontal or angled stripes to contour the natural curves of the body, or cinch the waist with a tie-top.
To make a bold, funky statement
Channel the Go-Go era with mod, multicolor stripes in contrasting shades. This bold look is best achieved with clean cut pieces and funky accessories like these saffron sunglasses or mod earrings!
