Where would we be without stripes? They’re as much a part of our wardrobes as skinny jeans or trainers but sometimes they can prove a little tricky to wear (we don’t want to go overboard with the nautical look).
Not anymore. Harness the super-flattering power of stripes with our 5 new twists, all of them a breeze to wear with options for a range of ages, shapes and styles.
If you love your arms but want to cover up elsewhere, this comfortable top will balance out your silhouette while bringing a strong hit of retro cool. Layer it or wear it as it is with slim, pale skinnies.
Even if you wore them the first time around, doesn’t mean you can’t still rock a strappy dress – the slim straps here make your arms appear more slender. Add a simple white shoulder bag.
OK: we can all agree that off-the-shoulder Bardot tops have conquered summer 2016. Pay homage to their original 50s vibe with this comfortable stretch number, putting the emphasis on your gorgeous neckline.
