What’s the buzzing trend from fashion week-goers? Pinstripes. The power print typical of Wall Street bankers was reimagined in stylish ways by front row regulars at the Fall 2017 shows. The latest take on the boardroom staple took shape in form of roomy wide-leg pants and feminine silhouettes like ruffled tiered skirts. Elsewhere, the print appeared on tailored blazers in oversized proportions and elevated with vinyl and fur accents. The trend was also a runway hit at the Spring 2017 shows, where designers zinged their collections with the pin-thin striped pattern in current cuts, giving the classic motif a fresh facelift. Take Demna Gvasalia’s sophomore collection for Balenciaga, where the Georgian designer used the motif across boxy blazers featuring broad, padded shoulders. Jacquemus offered plunging suits in chocolate brown, while at Tome pinstripes were dreamed up as smart separates such as sleek pants, billowing tea-length skirts, and corseted tops.
