The bold stripes seen throughout the Thomas Wakeford SS12 collection offer a new way to embrace the colorblocking fad that took the fashion industry by storm earlier this year. In fact, this collection refreshes the look so much that women will surely be open to welcoming even more vibrant and eccentric outfits into their wardrobe.

In particular, the Thomas Wakeford SS12 collection focuses on sun ray patterns that stretch over an entire outfit. The thick stripes in various bright hues gives the line a circus vibe without crossing the line too far. Nevertheless, the designs were inspired by a blending of "'90s acid house football culture in England and the literal aesthetics of 'Beetlejuice'," according to Style Bubble. It is this strange influence that really sets it apart. Stats for Boldly Striped Fashion Trending: Older & Mild
