Mollie King is a star in high-street stripes

To stripe or not to stripe? Let’s clear up this age old question right off the bat: stripes will always be in. Dress ’em up! Dress ’em down! This is one print that’s a wardrobe failsafe no matter what the season. And the idea that they’re unforgiving? Nothing but a myth.

SHOP NOW: RIVER ISLAND’S BEST INSTA-BUYS

Just look to Mollie King who gives excellent stripe. The Saturdays singer is embarking on a solo career and that means she’s treating us Instagram fans to a host of covetable looks while on the promo trail. And the best bit: they’re totally affordable.

Take this sleeveless jersey dress by high-street hero River Island. Those chunky bold stripes in a chervon shape are ultra flattering as they lead your eye upwards, while the simple silhouette and round neck keep things laid-back. I need it in my wardrobe right this second.

Happily, the dress has just gone on sale, dropping from £50 to a bargainous £20. You can shop it right here, right now.

As much as we all love a classic Breton tee, it’s nice to make like Mollie now and again by stepping outta the trad navy/white box. A multi-coloured stripe gives your wardrobe an instant, modern lift, especially when grounded with classics.

Add oversized sunglasses, understated black heels and your trusty leather biker jacket et voila! Keep hair messy if you don’t want to look too preppy. 

Has all this left you wanting to purchase some fresh stripes? I thought that might happen, so I’ve rounded up a few faves in The Dressr Edit…
