I have a confession.  I AM OBSESSED WITH STRIPES.  

I've got 99 problems and 98 are stripes.  Okay, so maybe that's a bit obvious, but I'm here to tell you the benefits to this "problem."

01. They go with everything.  Any color.  Any pattern.  Any pair of insanely bright pair of pants.

02. They're classic

03. They go this way

summer stripes

04. And that way

Fashion Vertical Stripes Printing Chiffon Jumpsuit

05. And the other way


06. You can look like Beetlejuice

07. You stand out in a crowd

08. They make getting dressed super easy.  Jeans + striped shirt + tan flats = instant chic

09. You can look like Audrey Hepburn, Jean Seberg, and James Dean

A photo of Audrey Hepburn on the set of War & Peace 1955, look as chic as ever in a Breton striped shirt.Jean Seberg in one of her famous striped breton shirts.
James Dean - The Breton stripe shirt. James Dean, Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso, Joey Ramone, Coco Chanel, Jean Seberg, the list is endless of icons, male and female, who've sported the unisex nautical striped shirt. Born officially as part of the French sailors uniform to easily identify them if they fell overboard. The original shirt featured 21 stripes, one for each of Napoleon's victories.

10. You'll blend in well in a prison.



  1. Black and white stripes are my weakness. It is hard to pass a B&W shirt (or anything for that matter) up

    1. I'm the same way! You can never have too many black and white striped t shirts.
