Spring 2015 Trend Watch: New Stripes

Fashion is going sideways for stripes—literally. Take, for instance, Haspel’s natty pairing of horizontal stripes with a linen suit above. It’s just the kind of look worth copping all season long. Still, weren’t we all warned at one point never to wear horizontal stripes? Spring introduces several new approaches to stripes: brands are co-opting them to make fewer preppy, nautical, and military references than fun, optical statement pieces. Aside from new and exciting placements of stripes, designers are even juxtapositioning stripes for dimensional effect and even piecing together different fabrics to create more textural stripes. Meanwhile bolder stripes can have the welcome effect of changing one’s proportions for the better and adding just the right pop of color (and wit) to an outfit. Here, 10 ways in which brands are reinterpreting stripes with a cool, modern flair:

“Constance” trim fit blue/white stripe shirt in cotton, Haspel, $225.

Handwoven organic contrasting stripe shirt, Neuba, $228.

Blue knitted stripe cotton polo, Topman, $50.

Navy rugby stripe sweatshirt in cotton, Archival Clothing, $90.

Indian Madras cotton popover shirt, GANT Rugger, $125.

Side-striped cotton tee, Maison Kitsune, $115.

Striped Craft-T in Egyptian cotton, Craft Atlantic, $95.

10-1/2” Maddox Berber short in cotton, Club Monaco, $79.50.
