Vogue Italia announces stripes are trending 2017


We think it’s very fitting that Vogue Italia announced ‘stripes’ to be one of the top trends in 2017. And we’ve already seen them transfer from Europe to Aus, being featured by some of our favourite Australian labels including Faithfull the Brand.

From Balenciaga to Sonia Rykel, Chloe and Fendi’s sunglasses, stripes are back to mix and match as you please. Patterns in general are huge this summer so it’s time to express your creative flair. Get colourful (it’s the most saturated colour palette we’ve seen on the runways in a while!) and don’t be afraid to clash. But most importantly make sure you add stripes to your wardrobe this summer.

We love the James Smith On Duty Capri Slides for Summer 2017/18. Featuring a luxe padded white base and smooth upper, these slides are the comfiest decision you will make wardrobe wise. And what’s better than a summer tan against fresh white? The blue and white stripes also offer a traditional nautical take on the stripe trend of 2017/18.

Team the James Smith On Duty Capri Slides with beautiful wide leg linen pants and patterned silk blouse for the perfect print clash.

If you’re looking for a patterned slide you can’t go past the Off Duty Limoncello. These slides scream summer with our exclusive lemon print, not to mention are Made In Italy and are limited edition. Yellow is definitely the colour of Summer 2017/18. Kate Bosworth kicked off the trend at the Venice Film Festival in a yellow embellished Miu Miu number and Gigi Hadid was recently spotted at her Gigi Hadid X Maybelline party.

The light and dark contrast of the Limoncello slides lend themselves to a variety of outfit choices. Dark denim or fresh summer dresses, these slides will be your go to this summer.
