How to wear stripes

This season’s stripes draw inspiration from pyjamas and old-school beach towels and umbrellas.

Stripes are making a grand comeback this spring and summer, but it isn’t your trusted pinstripes and Bretons that are the main trend this season. To ace the striped trend, you should opt for items in less ordinary fabrics and colour schemes than you usually do. This season’s stripes draw inspiration from retro sportswear, pyjamas, beach towels and even old-school umbrellas.

If you’re someone who likes to play it safe, a classic black and white long-sleeved T-shirt is a good jumping-off point (while growing accustomed to all-over stripes). If you never take the safe bet – go ahead and mix vertical and horizontal stripes on both tops and bottoms.
