    Go beyond the classic Breton with funky lined accessories this spring

    BE IT bold, ribbon-like lines or the more subtle pinstripes, horizontal or vertical, the stripe is turning out to be a runway trend that’s here to stay. Yara Shahidi in a Naeem Khan, Naomi Harris in a Lanvin and Michelle Dockery in an Ellie Saab number grabbed eyeballs with their striped outfits at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and closer home, Kangana Ranaut was spotted rocking Fendi’s Resort ’17 specials during promotions for Rangoon recently. We give a twist to the trend and move from ensembles to accessories to amp up your fashion quotient.
