Stripes were a big hit on both the Autumn/Winter and the Spring/Summer 2016 runways earlier this year as we saw designers such as Vivienne Tam, BCBG, Salvatore Ferragamo, Ralph Lauren and Prada showcasing big, bold stripes in every color imaginable. It’s a trend that doesn’t seem to be slowing down.

For those who want to take this trend off the runways and into their daily lives without needing the confidence of a professional fashion blogger, we would suggest taking a simple stripe and matching it instead with bold accessories.

The Dress (Day to Night)

This pinstripe dress is a must have luxury staple for your wardrobe. The lightweight fabric (100% cotton) and the cinched in belted waist makes this piece an easy to wear piece during the hotter days, and its shirt like appearance makes this a no brainer for casual work days or carefree weekend styling. Plus the tiny pin stripes on this dress allow you to be on trend and also play around with big bold accessories.

Designer Jonathan Anderson said of his brands choice to keep production of his clothing within the UK “It’s incredible to be able to employ people in our area and keep the economy going.” This also allows the brand to ensure their workers are working under ethical conditions.

This brand is about as ethical and sustainable as you can get. The brand is 100% vegan and uses recycled plastic bottles to line their bags. In addition to being vegan, sustainable materials are constantly sourced in design such as cork and rubber. For a day to night look it’s best to keep the bag lightweight and in a classic color like black.

To take the day look from  casual to a slightly formal night outfit, throw on a lightweight cotton blend blazer like this classic cut Versace piece. The extra structure from the blazer will distract from the casual nature of the shirt.

No matter what accessories you choose for your day to night look, make sure to always think about where they came from and what impact your purchases have on the environment, humans and animals.
