Earlier this week, I was shopping in J.Crew and came to the realization that I have an obsession with stripes. Thick or thin, I love them all. My purchases, which were 75% striped, prompted a discussion with the sales associate.
We decided that it is perfectly fine to buy an obscene amount of clothing only because they are covered in horizontal lines. Why? Because stripes are classic. I like that bold stripes are flashy while thin stripes aren’t as…in your face.
If you’re new to wearing stripes, start out simple. Pair a striped top with jeans and add basic accessories. For a more daring look, wear with a colorful clutch for a pop of color that’s fun, but not too over the top.
Stripes are great for any age–young or
old mature. Don’t be afraid to try this everlasting trend!
