Stripes are always popular in menswear and especially this season they were hard to miss. Many fashion houses sported stripes on the runway and not all in a navy (Iceberg, Junya Watanabe) kind of way.

Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Gianfranco Ferre and Galliano showed very diverse, multicolored stripy items. Whether faded, bright, horizontal or vertical; with some stripes in your outfit, you’ll sure make a striking appearance.

Next to the blue and white navy-like stripes there is another world of stripes we just need to discuss. Those stripes are bold, wide and come in many different shades.

Prada’s stripes definitely are the most recognizable ones (also since they’re copied all over the world by high street fashion houses). Blue, pink, green, orange; the brighter, the better.

Karl Lagerfeld chose diagonal stripes for fendi and at Jil Sander they were extremely wide and vertical. Watanabe’s models looked like they’d just escaped from prison and Marc Jacobs gave his striped dresses a vintage feeling due to his choice of color.

We saw so many stripes on the runway, it seems there’s no way you can do without them this summer. And our advice, if you go for some stripes is: don’t hold back! Let them stand out & just have fun with it.
