Stripes are a Staple – The Trend That Never Goes Away!


It’s 6.30am and we’re standing in front of the wardrobe with coffee in hand, half awake, trying to pick out something to wear for the day. Obviously there’s nothing to wear even though the wardrobe is packed. Whether we’re still sleepy or just lacking inspiration, we put on a white blouse and the same old black pencil skirt. Stop! Think again…

In the corporate world, it’s easy to get lost in outfit normality. Wearing black dress pants and a black blazer on an everyday basis doesn’t interest us in the least bit. Instead, we find ourselves putting together extremely outgoing office outfits. It’s a really fun way to express yourself in a business environment while still remaining professional.

This Spring/Summer’17 season, transform your workwear wardrobe by purchasing a few pretty striped pieces to add instant interest to your attire.

Stripes are proving to be indisputable this season, providing a contemporary update for every woman’s wardrobe. Easy to wear, fun to play with, elegant and comfortable, a striped staple item adds richness and a little bit of fun to an otherwise simple outfit.

These horizontally striped pieces from Hobbs will be a wardrobe staple for any professional woman.
