Playful & Fashionable: Stripes!

They're sporty and totally wearable – no wonder stripes are everywhere this summer. And while we're all for bright colours, black and white is our obsession du jour. It gives the pattern a contemporary edge while allowing it to be neutral enough to wear with just about anything.
