Milly Anais Hostess Dress, right. Marc by Marc Jacobs Beatrix Stripe Sweater Dress, left.
This season, designers took stripes beyond Breton mainstays to something bolder. Thick lines both horizontal and vertical popped up in collections by Isabel Marant, Marc Jacobs, and Jil Sander, and proved to be a refreshing take on the blueblood-prep signature. How to wear the look? Take a page from the Marc by Marc Jacobs dress pictured and mix wide stripes with a thinner variety, or dress down a floor-length Milly dress with a cardi, belt, and flat sandals. If designer loungewear is more your tune, Splendid tees give the trend a relaxed feel.
