About Me

My photo
I am 21, I live in London, I love clothes and I'm a bit of a slave to fashion. My friends know of my addiction to the latest trends and often ask me for my advice which I am more than happy to give(!) I also have a secret habit of styling people that I see on my travels, reinventing an improved style for them in my mind! I've been following a few fashion blogs but haven't really found what i've been looking for, so i've decided to create my own to share my ideas of style with anyone who is interested! I am a working girl on a tight budget (a healthy size 10) and clothes have to come at a price I can afford. I am hoping to show that it is possible to keep up with the trends with buys from the high street. So, I will be posting things that I would want to see in a blog. I hope you like it! I'd appreciate constructive comments. xx

Season for Stripes

Trend Four.

Stripes - the best way to brighten up your summer wardrobe.

Oh how I love this trend as it's always reoccuring so I always seem to be able to dig deep into my wardrobe and find stripes of some sort. It saves on the clothes funds at least!

There are many different styles of stripes to choose from, vertical, horizontal as well as skinny or thick stripes. Generally they say to choose horizontal ones if you are completely happy with your body shape and the vertical/diagonal ones if you would prefer to "lose a few pound" or emphasize your most flattering curves and body parts.

As you can see Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2011 collection was heavily influenced by stripes.
