Street Style: Stripe Hype

We love stripes here at BWA HQ- perhaps its the francophile within us that. The beauty of stripes, particularly a Breton striped top is that it takes a look from ordinary to parisian chic instantly, even if you are just pairing it with a pair of denim jeans.

Our top tips to wearing this look are:

– Unless you’re hitting fashion week, try to wear this look with block colours. For example, pair a striped top with denim jeans and a black leather jacket for a modern chic look.

– We love this stripe in a midi or maxi dress, but be mindful of cut, as that will determine how the stripes sit on your body.

– Play with perspective. Some people suit a thinner stripe, or you can go bold with thick stripes for a real statement look. We love this bold striped midi dress from

– Accessorize. This look is all about how you pair it with accessories. Think fedoras, leather jackets or even pops of colour in clutches or a statement bag.
