Market Trends

To some people, the idea of stripes on clothing brings to mind sailor outfits or conservative black-and-white numbers, but this summer there is a new trend in town. This season's striped look is all about bold colors and unexpected combinations, and Bata World News has the lowdown.

A whole host of designers have jumped on the stripe train for their Spring/Summer 2017 collections, with Fendi opting for bold, wide vertical stripes, Givenchy colorful, horizontal stripes and Versace playing with a variety of fabrics and colors to create stripe effects with their pieces.

Selene Oliva, in an article for Italian Vogue, recently wrote: “If you think it’s just another fashion revival you’re wrong: stripes are back for Summer 2017 but with an inventive twist to discover and wear.”

This season, stripes are not limited to one or two styles. They can be seen on every item of clothing imaginable: from dresses and skirts to trousers, tops and even bikinis and accessories. Match multiple striped items for a really bold, on-trend look, or simply add a single piece to your look to show that you are up to date with the latest fashions.

So, what shoes to wear with that gorgeous new striped dress, or flowing, striped trousers? Stripes work great with both heels and flats, so you have complete freedom to choose the shoes that work best for you. If you want to make the stripes the focal point of your look, pair your statement piece with a pair of cute pink or white sandals, or choose tan or beige to really show off the colors in your stripes.

Or why not add a subtle touch with a pair of striped shoes? These can be worn with your favorite outfit, and will give you an on-trend look that is both subtle and charming, showing everyone that your stripe game is on point.

Take a look at the gallery for a selection of Bata shoes that are perfect for the stripes trend, or head to your nearest Bata store to try them on for yourself.
