New York Fashion Week Trendspotting: Blanket Stripes

Feb 16 2012 - 1:15pm

Fashion month just got started but we've already spotted a burgeoning trend: blanket stripes. Designers like Michael Kors [1], Rag & Bone, and Richard Chai [2] all used the rustic print on a bevy of silhouettes, ranging from cool caped ponchos to sleek suiting. We love this cozy, textural effect for winterwear and if you do too, check out the slideshow for more blanket stripe spotting on the runways at New York Fashion Week.
