Stripes are all the rage

 Stripes, stripes and more stripes. They are everywhere this Spring. In fact it is difficult to go into any shop or browse any website without encountering striped tops, sweaters, bags, trousers, dresses and skirts.

Personally I am not a fan of high contrast stripes such as black and white or brightred and white. Too stark in my opinion unless you have dramatic colouring to balance the look. However a subtle muted stripe such as this wool/cashmere blue/grey stripe knit clothing by cutewe is flattering.    

It feels wonderfully soft and is a versatile easy to wear piece. I am wearing it here with a navy turtle neck sweater and black trousers as the weather here is still cold and mercurial. It will look equally good later in the season with white or cream linen.

A navy and white striped tee is a closet must have and the base for today’s simple, casual and classic with a little bit of fun look. No simpler and more casual look than that of jeans and a tee.
