Wear those stripy clothes with pride!
Yea, I just semi-quoted one of the lines from the best letter ever written to anyone! (It’s from Me Before You, by the way).
Having said that, if you do not know that stripes (be it breton, barcode, pinstripes, candy stripes, shadow stripes or awning ones) have been the hottest trends for the last 4 seasons, then I’d really like to know where you have been living, because that level hermitage is enviable, and sometimes, needed.
I remember the first time I fell in love with stripes was when I was in fashion school, learning about the greatest minds in the business of fashion, and stripes happened to be associated with Coco Chanel first, and then Jean Paul Gaultier and his love for everything nautical!
For my outfits, I sought to create an outfit that would be semi-casual, easy to wear and keep you comfortable all day long. Pairing my stripy top (Zara) with either a pinstripe blazer or woven grey jacket with a pair of jeans (Nuon) and ballet flats (Head Over Heels), my backpack (Zara) filled with my essentials would have me ready to face the day and hustle, even if I have to commute within the city to get to places.
