Stripe heaven...

I was recently invited to intu Trafford Centre to check out the latest collections to hit the shops for spring/summer 2016 and, much to my delight, one of the key trends for this season is of course stripes.

Anybody who knows me knows that I have a minor obsession with all things striped so, I will definitely be welcoming this trend into my spring/summer 2016 wardrobe with open arms.

My first stop on the trip was to Karen Millen which had a number of striped pieces in a monochrome palette, perfect for the coming season. Alongside the striped numbers, the store also had a couple of green/yellow pieces ideal for brightening up any look - my favourite being the lime duster coat.

Following Karen Millen, I visited Miss Selfridge, Missguided at Selfridges, and Sandro at Selfridges, where stripes were much more prominent. Playsuits, Bardot necklines, and lace-up tops are key for SS16.

Next was Topshop followed by Zara, both of which did not disappoint. If you're looking for all things stripe for your spring/summer 2016 wardrobe then I would definitely recommend visiting these two stores. 

Whether it be jumpers, tees, jumpsuits, playsuits, trousers, dresses, shorts, skirts, or even jackets, Topshop and Zara have just about every garment you can imagine in a variety of different stripe designs. 

Key pieces, which I will most definitely be purchasing for this season include, the navy stripe jumpsuit, the navy and white dress, and the black and white playsuit - all from Topshop, in addition to the Zara shirt dress and Bardot top. 







Overall, I had a great time visiting intu Trafford Centre, and managed to walk away with a number of pieces perfect for the season ahead.
