Walk the Line

A new trend is upon us and there is no need to read between the lines as the high streets are practically shouting it out!   Spring 2013 is all about stripes and vertical ones at that.  Anything goes from butcher stripes to leg-colourblocking to the more commercial pinstripe.  I’m especially loving the new take on pants…This is what i spotted last week on the high streets...

It was a total stripe-out for fashion week S/S13 with everyone from Marc Jacobs to Balmain sending candy-canes down the runways.
Marc Jacobs' finale pretty much summed it up...

Love this take on the trend at Balmain

Celebs everywhere are voting for this hot new trend.  If you feel the bold stripe is just too much for you and a little Willy Wonka-ish, the racing-stripe take on the trend (so it's basically a thicker stripe running on your outer leg seam) is a great way to play it safe and is ever so flattering as they make your legs look about half their width!  Score!

With love from London…
