My love for all things casual and striped knows no bounds. Those familiar with me and my style will know my obsession with stripes, especially in casual and smart trousers. I find striped items of clothing to be extremely multi-dimensional and easily transmutable. The simplest changes in accessories or other items of clothing while wearing a striped piece can change the whole vibe of the outfit. However, I must admit that despite my love for stripes, there is something about
horizontal stripes that just doesn’t sit well with me. They’re……just blah (Sorry to my Breton stripe lovers). Nonetheless, I think everyone should wear and appreciate stripes. They are arguably the longest and most consistent fashion trend since the medival era (FACT).
Today, with the weather being very good, I went for a very casual outfit. As is the norm with me, I am wearing some straight legged trousers and some loose trainers. I teamed them up with an oversized vertical striped t-shirt. With the outfit being very casual, I think the stripes give it a little extra something. Definitely a good outfit for a casual walk around.
