It’s rare that one can misstep when it comes to stripes, the most classic and easy to wear form of print – still fun but elegant, in all of their variations! I love them, any which direction they might take…
A good stripe is something effortless to add a little pep, a way I dare to venture beyond the usual block neutrals and colors. (Plus a vertical stripe is maybe the most flattering detail of all time.) You can embrace a more 70s spin like Louise, play up monochrome like Ale, or clash a stripe with another print like Zoe… That’s the magic of stripes — everyone has their own interpretation and there are innumerable ways you can weave them into your wardrobe, in all colors and all widths. You really put your own
stripe stamp on them.
I usually love to show off my stripes by pairing them with vintage denim or taking a more enthusiastic approach by clashing them with other prints… How do you wear yours?
