Tracking the development of the head-to-toe stripes trend this spring has been fascinating! It was interesting to witness the trend trickle down from the runways, to magazines and blogs, and finally to stores and people on the street. With that said, here are my final predictions for the rest of the spring and the coming fall!
As the months grow warmer and warmer, I think that even more women will start sporting striped maxidresses. The few striped suits and skirt/top sets will disappear except perhaps pinstriped suits for the office.
For fall, I predict that the wide, colorful stripes prevalent this spring will be reduced to thin stripes in neutral colors. We will also probably see more suits than dresses because of the cooler weather. This prediction is supported by the WWD article “Stars of Stripes” which illustrates that several designers showed pinstriped suits for Fall 2013.
