With a self confessed addiction to dresses and enough stripey tops in my wardrobe to send my family cross eyed, I was delighted to see two of my favourite trends come together this spring/summer... STRIPEY DRESSES.
Leading Designers paved the way in their S/S collections, moving away from the classic breton colours and striking out with thick bands of bright colours. My personal catwalk favourite the Marc Jacobs striped silk dress, the sublime combination of colours and unique balance of casual and formal make it the ideal dress to cycle and swish your way to summer tea parties in.
Bicycles and stripey dresses have come together in New York with stylish bicycle boutique Adeline Adeline collaborating with Designer Kate Spade, modeling her dresses on beautiful bright green signature Kate Spade bike
A few other stripey frocks standing in line this summer are...
This fun mini dress from ASOS with triple trend points boasting stripes, pastel shades and pleats
Or for a more classic look try J Crew's stripe blouson silk de chine dress from Net-a-porter. Casual yet elegant this dress is ideal for cycling to the office or out for early evening drinks.
And for a bargain buy go for H&M's Jersey dress with Prada-esque bright and bold stripes, in the sale at only £9.99
