From the Runway to Reality: ‘Tis The Season to Show Your Stripes


We were seeing stripes up and down the Spring 2013 runway, and not just your standard horizontal or vertical kind. Bold black and white lines, chic chevron prints and colorful zig zagging patterns showed up at the shows of Oscar de la Renta, Dolce and Gabbana and Helmut Lang just to name a few. Michael Kors was all about stripes on the 90s throwback crop top paired with high waisted bottoms while Marc Jacobs stuck to the 60s mod theme with statement linear patterned separates and classic kitten heels. Feeling bold? Match your nails to your outfit with a striped manicure.
