Chic summer stripes: Neon and bright!

I’ve been spotting the classic navy stripes (aka Breton stripes)  a lot recently, and they seem to be a worthy trend to wear this summer. My friend wore a navy striped tee last night at dinner.

But summer is about bright colours, especially in India, because we wear colours, come hail, snow or sunshine. So why not ditch the boring navy stripes and embrace stripes in a bold new avatar this season? Here’s how:

Marc by Marc Jacobs brightened the Spring/Summer 2011 ramp with his multi-coloured bold stripes. This stripe dress is simple yet eye-catching and ummm… just gorgeous!

So look for striped tshirts and dresses (and even shorts!) that are bright and summery, and you’ll be wearing a high fashion-inspired look. While you’re at it, take a cue from Marc Jacobs and pair with a hat or chunky jewellery.

We went hunting for just such an outfit, and found not one, but three similar tshirts at Zara. Here’s one of them:

The colours are not as bright, and the bands’ width varies, but the impact is just as it should be!

Are you gearing up for summer with bright colours?
