Earn Your Stripes: This summer, there's no right way to wear the latest trend

The Duchess didn’t make stripes a classic but she incorporates them often into classic looks, like the nautical ensemble chose for a Regatta launch last month. Get the look with LK Bennett’s Parker trousers (€170, lkbennett.com) and Arket’s Marinière striped merino knit top (€79, arket.com).

In the lexicon of summer fashion, the perennial appeal of stripes makes them practically a neutral. On the spring summer ’19 catwalks, statement stripes ran every which way for maximum impact. From pinstripes and seersucker to deck chair brights and chunky chevrons, there’s simply no right way to wear stripes this season. Carolyn Moore reports.
