Stripes

{Poppy Delevingne}

Oh I love a stripe. My wardrobe literally gushes with them, and this shows no signs of letting up. I am now having to split my laundry into a dark load, light load and stripes load. So here are some of my current faves. What attracts me to them is their ease - you can pair them with anything, and for me they instantly make an outfit. For day time, they go with a pair of jeans and slipper shoes. For night, they go with black trousers and pencil skirt and heels. A blazer, red lipstick and statement necklace are your weapons of choice to dress up your outfit according to varying degrees, as Poppy Delevinge demonstrates expertly above.
