How to wear stripes: the joyful fashion trend for spring 2022 | Fashion

Paul Smith SS22

For SS22, designers played with different colors, textures and stripe sizes to create impact, from bright and bold stripes at Brandon Maxwell, Emporio Armani and Christian Siriano, to a woven fringed striped dress at Chloé. And you can’t talk about stripes without mentioning Paul Smith (above): multicolored stripes have been at the heart of the brand since the beginning. This season they have been mixed with sunflower prints and contrasted with a palette of sun-bleached lemon and rich terracotta.

Successfully wearing stripes is all in the style. Take a striped piece as a focal point. Shirts are a great place to start: Kitri’s ruffled shirt (1 below) or La Redoute’s long-sleeved version (8 below) are both perfect to wear with denim, wide-leg jeans to the mini-skirt, with thick moccasins.

A wrap-around diagonal strip may be easier to wear. Stine Goya’s Scharla sweater (7 below) in pastel hues is perfect with crisp white wide-leg pants. 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 an all-over striped ensemble for maximum thrills. Asos’ yellow and white striped seersucker mini dress with puff sleeves and a high neck (£85) is the perfect summer dress and can be dressed up for an event with gold accessories. Meanwhile, the quickest way to jazz up an outfit is with a colorful striped bag. Oxfam’s spacious shopper (£4.99) and Oklahoma market bags make the supermarket cheerful and will double as beach or picnic bags.
