The athleisure phenomenon continues and racing stripes are center stage. All over the runways and on your favorite streetstyle stars for the last few seasons, racing stripes are bolder than ever this season – think high contrast, multi-color and prominent – whether running down a pair of wide-leg or crop trousers or across an oversized sweatshirt or jumper.
For a recent girls lunch in the West Village, I couldn’t wait to sport my new ecru high rise trousers with black side stripes that I paired with a sleeveless black lace top (with the most gorgeous scalloped edging) for something unconventional. I just adore racing stripes for their incredible versatility and way of creating an instantly on trend look, whether worn with sneakers or a killer pair of heels. To complete my athletic meets dressy look, I wore my favorite pair of single strap black suede heels, carried a quilted black Chanel bag and brought it all together with a black leather motorcycle jacket. For accessories, I opted for gold tones and a wore a pair of gold hammered hoop earrings, Chanel cat-eye sunglasses and gold stone embellished bangles.
