Nailing the rainbow stripe trend doesn't have to cost you a pot of gold.
Does anybody not have THAT Penneys rainbow-striped wrap dress? You know the one - it's certainly been doing the rounds on Instagram as of late.
Of course, I say this out of pure and utter spite. I live over 5,000 miles away from my native Dublin, so I am potentially closer to the actual rainbow than I am to getting my greedy little Leprechaun hands on this dress du jour.
Not least because of recent celebrations to mark Pride Month, rainbow-hued stripes seem to have become omni-present. As far as prints go, polka dots, cherries and constellations had their moment, but nothing is quite as cheerful as the colourful arches.
On the Spring Summer 2018 runways, Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini, Peter Pilotto, and Dolce & Gabbana tapped into the kaleidoscopic array of colors, and Burberry incorporated elements of the rainbow into their collection in order to donate a portion of proceeds to selected LGBTQ charities.
On screens closer to you, Sincerely Jules' All Things Moochi maxi shirt dress was an instant sell out, LPA's striped button-up co-ords flew off the racks, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's Attico disco ball rainbow number sent our hearts soaring.
As Judy Garland intoned, "the dreams that you dream of.. really do come true".
Call us your fairy godmother, because we scoured the net in search of gold, and found these full spectrum looks for you in the process.
