When something is highlighted as a major trend is it already too late to embrace it as true fashion condemned a follower rather than an adventurer?..

Does the fact something is popular reduce it currency, making it smaller, grubbier..repetitive?

With stripes there’s a reason it nags away at you, an appeal, an intrinsic quality passed down through nature and the centuries..

If all the cover stories are to be believed, stripes are going to be the big thing this summer.  It’s quite refreshing after the years they’ve spent in the fashion wilderness, rejected for allegedly making all who wear them immediately 2 stone heavier.  But now loose clothing and comfort are the holy grails of choice, stripes have been welcomed back to the fold with open arms.  Hurrah! But top of my list for and ripe purchase is not for me – but for The Husband – I love the thought of a man in a Breton top, with faded jean, a loose navy cotton jacket and a pair of dark shades..
