Trend Report: Bold Vertical Stripes

If there is one print that you add to your wardrobe this fall, make it vertical stripes. This reorientation of a wardrobe classic is having a serious moment all over the world – I saw it on so many stylish women in Milan and Barcelona, and all coolest girls of NYC are rocking it as well.

This trend is an easy way to update your wardrobe – just one piece can make a major impact, especially if you choose one with thicker stripes.  A smaller scale stripe can look chic and professional under a blazer, acting a modern take on a pinstripe.


If you want to amp up a look even more, pairing horizontal and vertical stripes is chic and fashion forward.  This “Pumpkin Stripes” set from Rue 107 in the perfect fall palette makes it easy as pie (sorry, I had to!)
