Spotted at LFW: Stripes are battling the spot trend. Make a statement in polka dots this season.
The stripe print was also worn to make a trendy statement in contrast to spots taking over the streets, at London fashion week. We adore a striped look, due to the sheer history this print holds. For example, in the early 19th century, the pinstripe was used by London banks to identify their employees. Over time, they have become a fashion statement. As a result, each stripe type holds it’s own history . Therefore, we, at Little Black Dress, think that narrating a story through stripes is a great way to add depth to an outfit.
We love the Floral dresses featuring a striped and floral print to result in a unique dress made to turn heads. For this reason, our favourite beauty product to pair with the maxi is the Bellamianta tan to give a healthy glow. We also suggest taking a look at our print dresses to get your stripe fix.

Statement earrings were also spotted on the LFW streets, we think there is no better than the Embellished Hoop Earrings in our collection to invest in for this cool trend.
