If solid colors feel a tad too mundane for your taste, a quick fix is to incorporate a pattern into your look. It instantly elevates any regular OOTD from zero to hero! However, the plethora of prints out there may seem overwhelming for a beginning. If you're only starting to dip your toes in the world of prints, there are a couple of tried-and-tested ones that you simply can't go wrong with. One such print that we’ll never see going out of style are stripes. After all, this classic pattern has been around for ages and we still see it dominating trends time and time again.
We can attribute the rise of stripes in womenswear to Coco Chanel's 1917 collection inspired by a trip to the French Riviera. She showed striped sweatshirts that became such a revolutionary piece for the brand, and it's still associated with Chanel today. Fast forward to modern-day fashion, this timeless print exudes a summery vibe yet still makes for a perfect look no matter the season. Proving that stripes are a perennial wardrobe staple, we rounded up several chic celeb and influencer OOTDs featuring this versatile pattern that’ll convince you to try it out in your next ensemble.
How Celebrities and Influencers Wear Stripes
