Trend Alert: Stripe It Up


Nothing says summer quite like a cheery stripe! Stripes are here to stay and contrary to popular fashion belief, all shapes can pull them off. We’ve done our research and found the perfect striped outfit for your shape:

Rectangle shape

If you’re lucky enough to be skinny, horizontal or diagonal stripes are your best bet! The Racer Stripe Tunic by Stylista Original is the perfect sporty chic look for a slender girl, thanks to its racer back and fitted silhouette. shape_rect

Pear shape

Bottom heavy girls should try wearing a neckline that draws attention to your collarbones and shoulders and takes the focus away from the bust. This Stripe It Up Dress by Yogesh Chaudhary is flattering and fits like a dream. Additionally, the pencil skirt is a great way to show off a sexy derriere!


Apple shape

Vertical stripes are slimming, and every big girl knows that. The kaftan is a universally flattering silhouette, and our Line It Up Kaftan by Yogesh Chaudhary is a summer staple that packs a punch. The belt cinches at the waist and adds definition. Wear with leggings or cropped denims to work or a day out with the girls.


 Strawberry shape

Being top heavy can be quite a hassle when looking for an outfit that fits just right. This Back To School Dress by Stylista Original is roomy and comes in a comfy, breathable fabric that makes it a great choice for summer.


Hourglass shape

You’ve got the ideal body shape, now to find you a dress that celebrates it! A fitted maxi works great, preferably in a vertical stripe to add height. Our Stripe Affair Maxi Dress by Yogesh Chaudhary is likely to draw the right kind of attention on a night out with its cowl neck, thigh-high slit and curve-flattering fit.


If you’re new to the trend this season, start with basic prints before moving onto mix-matched stripes or brightly coloured pieces. Have a look at our the video below, have a blast putting your look together and get in line with these fun pieces from!
