Hello there 🙂
I do trend research all the time. I admit, it is my life's work to discover new trends big and small for all of you, from chasing fashionable girls on Instagram to hours on the Vogue runway. With that being said, there are definitely some sliding through the cracks and I realized the other day that I've seen everyone wearing pinstripes for a few months now, but it has never really registered in my brain. So here I am, coming to you ASAP with a story about the microtrend that is so subtle that I almost missed it.
Pinstripes are a tried and tested pattern that we most often associate with matching or office-appropriate clothing. While this aspect of the pattern shouldn't really be defined as a trend, the use of the fine lines on items like bustier tops, pleated mini skirts, and statement pants certainly can. Thanks to some of my favorite fashion girls, this microtrend is gaining momentum and the way they style this classic pattern is breathing new life into even the most basic pieces. From sultry matching sets to simple blazers, pinstripes have officially proven a trend and I have the pictures and products to prove it. Pre-scroll down to see some of my favorite ways fashion girls are using to style pinstripes this year and shop for the items you need to manage the look.
