We’ll Take You To The Candy Shop
Forget boiled sweets – right now, we’re getting our sugar fix in stripe form…
What’s with 2017, huh? One minute it’s 6°C and you’re wearing approximately nine layers; the next, it’s the height of summer and your wardrobe only consists of either bobbly knits or full-on beachwear. The solution? Countless cotton staples with a super-slim candy stripe (very flattering FYI), in all the shades you’d expect to see in your local confectionery cash and carry. A firm fixture on the catwalk – think Victoria Beckham and Altuzarra – this take on the classic motif has cemented itself as the street style elite’s stripe of choice, and it’s not hard to see why. Guaranteed to give you serious style kudos in any situ (we’re thinking BBQS, on hol, in the office, off the clock… you get the gist), we recommend wearing with white denim for sunshine days or, when the weather turns (as it inevitably will), try working with leather or suede for a cool clash. Indeed, these are the kind of sweet treats your dentist would fully approve of.
