February Magazine Content Analysis

Images per magazine featuring head-to-toe stripes:

Elle: 3

Vogue: 5

Harper’s Bazaar:3

Remember how last month Harper’s Bazaar didn’t showcase stripes at all? Well, they certainly made up for it in the February issue! Almost an entire spread was dedicated to the trend, picturing a Dolce & Gabbana top/shorts set (paired with striped thigh-highs!) and a Michael Kors suit and a Marc Jacobs maxidress.

Vogue‘s main spread celebrating the heroes of Hurricane Sandy raised some controversy because some deemed it inappropriate and in poor taste given the situation (The Week). Still, the spread featured three lovely striped ensembles: an Oscar de la Renta gown, a Michael Kors sweater and skirt, and a Marc Jacobs top and skirt. There was also an article highlighting Solange Knowles, who was dressed in a Thakoon top and Hudson jeans.

Finally, Elle featured striped outfits just three times: in a personal style feature, an island-themed spread, and in a Dolce & Gabbana ad.
