Season after season, the stripes trend remains firmly on the catwalk and there’s no wonder why…  This nautical look offers an effortless Parisian feel and is a sartorial staple for any wardrobe.  So if you are looking for an instant update, then look no further, the stripe will stand any test of time and will present a French seaside charm to your look.  The iconic Breton Stripe is certainly a must buy mama’s, whether for yourself or your little ones! Introducing Sassy Mama’s picks of the moment…

Clockwise from left to top right to bottom right:

The Little White Company offers a range of nautical stripes for boys and girls, with maritime detailing such as anchors, lobsters and octopus’.  We love this long sleeved anchor t-shirt for boys.
Available at The White Company, Dubai Mall AED 109

These acetate-striped sunglasses by Illesteva are to die for.  With a blue back and white arms, the Leonard II frames are a must have for all you mamas, especially if you are travelling somewhere exotic this summer.
Available at Boutique 1AED 1,210

Chateau de Sable has a range of gorgeous children clothing from dresses to jumpsuits and this season you will find lots of different stripes, from skinny to wide, and in a variety of tasteful colour combinations.  This dress is super cute and is on sale so hurry, don’t miss out!!

I’m really into woven cotton towels at the moment and Hammamas is the newest brand to offer these fast drying, multi functional wraps.  Whether you use them as a towel, sarong or picnic rug, they are certainly going to be the most useful stripe you buy this summer.  We love!
Available at net-a-porter AED 191

This long sleeved striped tee is a basic that will look great on your casual fashion days, mama’s.  Wear with cut off shorts, with the sleeves pushed up, and accessorise with a panama and some round lens sunnies to totally nail off duty chic.
Available at GAP, Dubai Mall AED 115

A jersey dress is perfect for those wanting to embrace the stripe trend in a relaxed way.  We love this Lulu Bare batwing for its versatility.  Dress up with a killer shoe boot or down with sandals, either way you are sure to feel stylish, yet comfortable.
Available at Lulu Bare AED 547

Clockwise from top left: 

High-street giant, Zara, have a lot of stripes in this season so you can shop until your hearts content.  We love this little mini skirt with stripes positioned at different angels, perfect combined with a white crisp shirt and some pointy heels.
Available at Zara Reduced to AED 65 from AED 175

We all know the espadrille has been back in fashion for a while now but we love this Soludos striped version especially for its wrap around strap and its raffia footbed.  So cute… and of course comfortable!
Available at Shopbop AED 200

This candy striped cosmetic bag by Lou Harvey is really useful for the beach.  Throw in your ipod, wallet, keys and suncream to keep safe on the golden shores, and there may even be enough space for a nappy and pack of small wipes.   Once a mama, always a prepared mama!
Available at 
Little Majlis AED 85

A trend doesn’t just have to apply to fashion – you can embrace the stripe in your home too.  We love these striped cushions from West Elm, which will add a pop of colour to any room.  They will also look lovely in a garden or on a decking…  Experiment with colours mama’s!
Available at West Elm, Dubai Mall AED 190

Bikinis do tend to be quite pricey in this age unfortunately, but this seersucker set is totally divine, and hopefully wont break the bank.  The thin stripe is flattering and the baby blue will look gorgeous on tanned skin.  Don’t forget your suncream though mamas!!
Available at J Crew AED 255 top + AED 217 bottoms

With every trend, the techy savvy of us are just as keen to change our phone covers as they are to covet the craze in our attire.  This Marc by Marc Jacobs phone cover has a striped snake effect and is a lovely update for your iphone.
Available at Harvey Nichols

A daytime classic style with an instant update of cream and navy thick stripes, this shoulder bag screams Parisian chic and will look fabulous with a pair of cut offs for off duty style.  Sophie Hulme gets it right every time – we love (too much)!
Available at net-a-porter AED 1300
