I love stripes and I feel like it should be a golden fashion rule that everyone or at least every woman should have a striped t-shirt, shirt or blouse.
A lot of reasons are in assertion of the above statement, ranging from the versatility to the chic vintage look it conjures and then also the fact that stripes never fail and have been a stable trend over the years.
The thrill with this pattern is how it can go from totally casual with a relaxed feel to formal with an air of business. Bottom line is if you want to embrace the 90’s revival, you have to get striped at some point.
For a casual outing with friends, you can pair a striped crop top with high waist ripped jeans and high platforms or Yeezy sneakers. Then put on a striped shirt over a high waist midi skirt with cut-out pumps and watch your style game be approved with nods and countless smiles when going to the office.
This season, the stripes are more graphic than ever with garments from Dolce & Gabanna, Prada, Jonathan Saunders, Roksanda adorned with the strip. I myself have a drawer full of striped clothing I can’t live without.
