Five of of the best... show your stripes

While everyone else has been getting excited by graphics and return of gingham, checks and tartan, I've been quietly getting all excited by stripes. Be they horizontal, vertical or slanted every which way, stripes, like polka-dots, are always a versatile and chic addition to any wardrobe.

Wear monochrome stripes with a zing of brightness - a red belt like this dress from Additions Direct, perhaps - or wear coloured stripes to brighten up blue jeans. Go on, show your stripes, get yours in now.
