Straight from the runways to the stores, it’s all about stripes for Spring 2011. To be sure, stripes are never out of style – think Coco Chanel in a classic French-sailor striped tee or “la marinière,” Audrey Hepburn or even James Dean, proving even pretty, bad boys can rock horizontal stripes.
You cannot step into high street retailers Forever 21, H&M, Zara or even Old Navy right now without stripes jumping out at you. These pics (above) show just a smidge of what’s on offer at Forever 21 in New York’s Union Square. There’s traditional blue and white, nautical red, white and blue and even knotted nautical-style rope belts and a quirky Popeye t-shirt to accent the theme.
It seems every place is screaming Hello Sailor for Spring.

There is nothing prettier than stripes. Unfortunately, they are criminal for busty women…
LOVE stripes. Always eye catching.
The racks have been full of stripes in Sydney too. As for busty women, the choice of neckline can make all the difference … try a slightly deeper scoop or bisect with a V neck even a piece of jewellery that creates the V.
Thanks Lesley – Sabina we will get u into stripes yet girl! For me, the whole flat-chested French sailor look isn’t much of a stretch!!
