Walking in stripes

I don’t know about you guys but the first rule we learned about stripes during Home Economics lessons were that vertical lines gives the slimming illusion while horizontal, otherwise. But geometry is much more than giving an illusion for one’s physique; a palette of neutrals, red, blue or white can give off that nautical feel too.
Stripes have come a long way in fashion. Remember the jailhouse look, or how prisoners in cartoons would always don stripes? Well, fast forward to today, it no longer is synonymous with bad. Undeniably, it is striking and unlike the yellow, black and white stripes of a Monarch Caterpillar which warns predators if its poisonous self, put them onto an individual and it becomes an exotic ensemble.
Surely exotic is highly sought for.
At the end of the day, you’d want to wear it right because you do not want to look like you came out from from a bad dream. Coolness and effortless is what you’re aiming for.
UNTIL NEXT TIME
