The verdict is out everyone. According to the high street stores, the trend that is going to be carried from the catwalks and onto sidewalks next season is stripes-more specifically in this post, black and white ones!

How else did this simple black and white striped tunic from Lux end up on the cover of both the website and catalog of Urban Outfitters?

And it seems that our friends at Top Shop agree with this trend as well. Coming up with almost a whole collection of different variations of black and white tunics. Gee I wonder where they got their inspiration from. . . .

This design from Dior's AW05-06 collection must've haunted them for ages. They were probably kicking themselves for not picking it hot off the runway earlier when they saw these pictures plastered all over the place. Well. . . beter late then never!
