Here’s a quick history lesson: Breton French sailors originally wore stripes to stand out against waves in case they went overboard. As a result, Coco Chanel designed stripes into her nautical line…almost a hundred years ago! This only further confirms our opinion that stripes are a timeless classic that can be worn again and again for various occasions and events.
We obviously love stripes too, so today we’ve styled this tried-and-true pattern into outfits appropriate for the office, nights out, and everything in between!
