Vintage styling

When it comes to shopping the look this summer, vintage styling is back with a vengeance. Although the true elements of vintage clothing can be found in many modern day styling items with ease, the amazing quality women’s clothing at femmeluxefinery, has gone above and beyond when it comes to creating the perfect combination of a classic look that works amazingly with the much loved stripes that are being rated highly by vogue itself this season in wake of the Gucci fashion show 2018 that has just taken place.

With many stripes two piece sets available at femme luxe finery, from bold and vibrant striped two pieces, through to a classic black and white stripy sets (even venturing as far as multi coloured stripes and stripe detailed loungewear sets) it can be tricky knowing which to wear for what occasion and which one will look best on you.

Well, let’s narrow it down one by one.

Stripe detailed loungewear- Stripe detailed loungewear at femme luxe is perfect for those off duty vibes and let your hair down days. When you don’t want to go crazy, you may only be in the house, but should you need to go out, or feel like a quick cheeky drink with the girls, you can do so in style. Stripe detailed loungewear at femme luxe comes in a range of style, each with a unique styling technique on their own description as to how to make the most of your new striped outfit. When it comes to making the most out of a stripe loungewear set, like the Black Side Multi Stripe Loungewear Set, where the stripes are clearly evident and a focal point of the loungewear set, a relaxed approach in accessories is needed. With the focal point of out summer styling being stripes, we don’t want to take away from that and with something as bold as this loungewear set we want to keep that out main point. Styling striped loungewear like this with some easy trainers and a cap is all you need to rock the striped look this season.

Alternatively, combining what our next topic is, you could also opt for a designer inspired look with a stripy loungewear set such as the Black Cropped Stripe Detail Ribbed Loungewear Set. This type of loungewear is perfect for these nights on the run up to summer where the weather is still a little less than what we desire. With subtle stripe detailing across the cuffs, hem and hood slightly emphasising and accenting the striped layering affect created by the cropped style of this striped loungewear set, you can be sure that this look can go 0-100 real quick in terms of styling it up.

Both of these loungewear styles will work perfectly on anyone of any age or size and the key aim of loungewear is to be comfortable, however this season, the stripes are in and you don’t want to have a fashion failure getting left behind, even in your comfys!

Vintage inspired two piece sets - many of the striped two piece sets that are found here at femmeluxefinery have a very vintage feeling to them with the kick flare trousers and bell sleeve crop tops, but this summer, you know you’re going to rock one of these striped two piece sets with ease. No, this is where a little know how comes in handy. All of us are different shapes and sizes, but when it comes to stripes, we can make the illusion of our own perfections. So, if you feel a little self conscious of your height maybe or your size, you can learn what sort of stripes in two piece sets can help you. For example if you really want to just to the extreme end of the stripe scale this summer for a totally flawless look you can opt for a stripy co-ord ensemble such as the Multi-coloured Stripe Two Piece Set. With its retro feel and split wide leg trousers you can be sure of a knock out look for all occasions. However, we do not recommend this look for the office or formal occasion over the summer (we’ll give you some striped inspo for that later on). When it comes to a stripe detailed two piece set or an entirely stripe print two piece , as stunning as they may be, femme luxe  would keep this limited to your social style , being perfect for get together parties or just a nice day in the sun.

This feel is the same regarding some stunning stripy sets such as the Blue and Orange Striped Print Front Tie Two Piece Set and another one of your fave looks for SS18, the Pink Split Leg Two Piece Set. With a certain disco feeling surrounding the two, you’ll definitely be boogie ready in your stripes when hitting the dance floor this summer!

Now, although this isn’t a two piece set, it does deserve an honourable mention with how quickly its bound t be flying out of the femmeluxefinery base. If you want that classic black and white styling in a complete outfit, especially designed to bring your waist in and shape you in all the right places, while still fully keeping that stripe trend under your belt, using the vertical stripe advantage to your best then this is something you will fall involve with (we sure know that we did!)... The black and white stripe jumpsuit.

With its long wide leg approach and perfectly placed stripes, this is the summer must have for 2018 when it comes to an all in one! Keep this style game sunrise to sunset ready with ease. Accessories, need i say more?

Keep your day look chic with some simple flats and maybe a cropped jacket if you really need one. Shades and a little purse keeps you set to go. And remember, just because your rocking the stripe trend in this black and white striped jumpsuit, don’t be afraid to try mix and matching prints.

Next up, striped tops and designer inspired looks. When it comes to stripes some of our fave outfits are spotted through social media, fashion influencers and the big boys of the fashion industry. That’s why at femmeluxefinery many of the fave looks that fly from our website have a designer inspired influence behind them. Items such as the khaki stripe detail t-shirt dress. Following a much loved designer inspired print the classic red and green statement stripe detailing is perfect when it come to creating a relaxed yet unforgettable look for summer 2018.

With much similar inspiration following the trend in t-shirt dresses, jumper dresses, t-shirts and many more having this signature style of designer inspired stripe, although these do not do anything in terms of the illusions we talked about concerning stripes, they do keep you looking hot and on trend all season.

Stripes have heavily influences Gucci’s take on ready styles through the recent fashion show that has been so widely broadcast, that you simply cannot go wrong. With bold colours, geometric set ups and a lot of ambiguity surrounding many of the styles that have been on the big screen over the last few days, it’s clear that one message we can all learn from has come across.

As reported by vogue editor Sarah Moher what the ideas were behind the bold and unique designs p[resent during that fashion show  “they were Alessandro Michele’s metaphor for how people today construct their identities” Eluding us to believe that our fashion , style and aesthetic do really create who we are as people. So, in other words, it really is true that fashion defines us in today’s world. The striped two piece sets mentioned throughout this blog along with other designer inspired insights are set to be the craze of 18’ and you don’t want to get left behind.

Whether it’s a cropped stripe jumper or a disco fever co-ord stripe set, this season stripes are a must have and when it comes to switching up the style, combining prints and following the introduction to stripes so you know what works best for you is just a simple check list to success!
