Microstripes at Cynthia Steffe, Lela Rose, and Tuleh.
Style tip? Horizontal stripes are nothing new, but this season’s twist takes these linear patterns and shrinks them. Microstripes are populating the runway, mesmerizing us with their optical qualities. Try microstripes paired with solids or other patterns - while the metallic jacket and shorts are a fun foil for the microstriped bandeau top, the elegantly patterned jacket at Lela Rose adds a new level of sophistication to the simple stripe. Or you can do as Tuleh does and contrast the microstripe against smooth, bare skin.
