Why Stripes should always be a part of your wardrobe

A breton striped t-shirt is always on trend; either as a low key basic, rock ‘n’ roll staple or sailor-esque addition. Whereas a pinstriped shirt always works tucked into a suit for the workday or loose and oversize on the weekend. This spring/summer, stripes were all over the catwalks in a myriad of variations, but to me stripes always represent being on a vacation– whether at a resort or holiday house, stripes add a cheeky yet elegant touch to any look.
Above:A pinstripe shirt is always a good idea – keep it unbuttoned on holidays, a nod to riviera chic. Or keep your cool in a wide legged pant, the perfect getaway cover up. (Massimo Dutti shirt,Zimmermann lace shorts, Thomas Saboo anklet )

There is nothing like a backless maxi for warm spring afternoons – this one pairs stripes and florals, yet looks suprisingly minimalistic. (Ruby Sees All dress)
