Vertical Stripes Trend

Though we’re normally accustomed to the horizontal stripes of the archetypal Breton top, vertical stripes are having their own moment of late, and as usual the style set are ahead of the curve.  
Whether skinny or chunky, in black or grey or with streaks of colour, adorning palazzo pants or off-the-shoulder tops, the vertical stripe lends a touch of Riviera chic to any look and is the ideal palette cleanser in the face of summer’s usual flurry of boho prints and vibrant motifs.  
We’ve rounded up the best vertigo-inducing pieces on the web, from high street to high end. Effortlessly chic and naturally slimming, do you really need an excuse to invest?
