Timeless stripe trend to add to your wardrobe this summer

We’ll see this classic marine trend everywhere – on the streets, blogs and Instagram. Stripes have a long and interesting history that probably explains the eternal appeal of the print. In Michel Pastoureau’s book “The Devil’s Cloth: A History of Stripes“, one can learn that in the Medieval times, wearing stripes was a huge controversy. In the XIX century, they have become the pattern of prison uniforms. One of the figures who have disenchanted the stripes was Coco Chanel who always wore them on her voyage to Normandy and the French Riviera. Jean-Paul Gaultier who is believed to be the father of the ‘Breton top’. Soon, stripes have become a classic element of style of thinkers and artists such as Pablo Picasso or Jean-Paul Sartre. It was worn on the big screen by Jean Seberg, Marlon Brando, Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot. This nautical pattern has become synonymous with simplicity, elegance and effortless chic. Modern designers continue to experiment with its form. Still, there is nothing better than a classic thin-striped top that you can easily style with almost any wardrobe element.
