Rainbow stripes trend of springs past have been reinvented and have come back this summer season with a vengeance.
Bo-Kaap’s row of rainbow homes were a perfect backdrop to set off the stripe trend going strong for the spring summer 2016 season. I visited South Africa in July and had an amazing time in Capetown. One of my favorite experiences was my stroll through the colorful Muslim neighborhood. The neighborhood has been around since 1600s and has a great history originally habitated by the Dutch, Malaysians and Indonesians. The atmosphere was very quiet and welcoming. The bright array of tropical hues where a perfect backdrop for my rainbow head to toe outfit.
Is this picture nothing less than amazing!? I just so happened to be taking in the beauty of the winding blocks when an “old school” blue car came barreling around the corner and I had to rush to get the shot. The authenticity I am very proud of. The pink, green and blue was so perfectly captured.
I paired a rainbow stripe tie knot crop top with matching crop leg pants from Stela 9. I paired with a Cuban straw hat and white floral Melissa slide sandals and Celine sunnies. Vertical stripes can sometimes be more flattering than horizontal stripes. Vertical stripes tend to be more slimming. I personally feel the pattern is a chis way to wear a classic staple in your wardrobe.
