FashionMVP Trend of the Week: Bold Stripes

Stripes are pretty much a perennial print. From the dead of summer through winter’s chilliest days, the linear look works no matter what time of year it is- which is why we stan for it in a major way. And this fall, we’re going for the bold- in the form of vibrant graphic stripes. The season’s striped pieces are amped-up versions of the classic pattern, in rich hues that are impossible to miss — often with a ’70s inspired feel. And we’re definitely feeling them. Pair yours with denim for the weekend or tailored neutrals for work. Either way, this fall, prepare to get in line.
