Prisoner of Love
Jailhouse stripes are this summers breakout trend.
If loving stripes is a crime, then lock us up–but we’re not the only guilty ones. At Dolce & Gabbana, stripes took on a number of incarnations, including chic little summer dresses, resort-appropriate rompers and mix-and-match separates. (Toss one into any hum-drum wardrobe, and voila! Instant upgrade.) At Balmain, it was all about the trouser. With the '90s serving as inspiration, you can be sure that any of the dramatic black-and-white striped pairs were indeed fit for a supermodel. But if there’s one label we’re truly smitten with, it has to be Michael Kors, whose sporty and wearable take on the trend consistently makes the most of the female form—a quality we’d gladly do time for.
