Stripes are one of the most prominent trends for Spring/Summer 2013. They were seen all over the runways of Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain, Michael Kors, to name a few and now they are overwhelming the high street stores. Nautical stripes are always big for summer but this time around we will see a modern version of this classic print. Even though stripes in various colours and sizes are doing the rounds, black & white stripes are the most common ones. I adore this shirt from Zara as it works with absolutely anything and I love the oh so flattering vertical stripes. I've had this shirt for a week and I've already worn it thrice, once with a pair of leather leggings, another time with bubble gum pink skinny jeans and this time around with a skirt in a neutral hue. Adding a simple piece like this shirt to your wardrobe is an easy way to incorporate the trend. If you're feeling a bit daring, you could even experiment with a pair of vertical striped pants or statement striped shoes. I accessorized the ensemble with yet another trendy piece, the embellished clutch! This is a Forever21 buy that I will cherish forever. The clutch not only provides the right amount of colour to an outfit like this but I also love the tribal feel of its design. I added some rings and statement earrings to finish off the look. I hear statement earrings is another trend which is making a huge come back this summer! So if you've hidden those chandelier earrings, it's time to bring out the stash!
