While sporty stripes are always in style, this season designers gave us more elegant versions that are perfect for your warm-weather getaways. You might know him for his evening dresses, but New York designer Prabal Gurung also has excellent daywear. Here, he pairs a sporty striped dress with a silk-chiffon skirt peeking out underneath. Wear the dress during the day, and at night slip into the skirt, add a pair of heels, and you’ll be ready for the evening’s adventures.
At Rochas, Alessandro Dell’Acqua showed fantastic striped separates. The paillettes top can be dressed up or down – there is a matching skirt available as well as the shorts shown. It’s perfect for bringing a touch of glamour to your beachside dinner, and will be in style season after season. Can’t quite accept that the jumpsuit trend is here to stay? Tome has a feminine and fun pink and grey striped jumpsuit that might change your mind. The bow tie-front makes a great silhouette and breaks up the look. And the best part – you don’t need to wear accessories, which simplifies packing.
