And how to wear them like a pro!

PINSTRIPES

They are no more just office wear now.
 These extremely thin lines are making a comeback in the market for all the right reasons.

Pick a solid bright square with classy pants to complete your quick outfit.
 Button down for a breezy look with lazy denims.

QUICK ADVICE

Don’t mix similar thickness and weight of these stripes in your outfit. It will create a visually conflicting attire.


BRETON STRIPES

These sailor-like stripes must become your staple go- to pick for a day out in the Sun.
 These casual thick lines find an odd sombre and familiarity in chaos.

 Let them remain in focus.


BENGAL STRIPES

These beauties have a distinct Wall Street vibe and is most importantly one of the stripes that works for all.

TO DO

Layer these with jackets, coats and scarves for this office staple needs never be boring.

QUICK ADVICE

Try avoiding bright colours in the stripes or even as complimentary colors to steer away from I-just-came- out-of-a-children’s-book vibe.


CHALK STRIPES

Chalk stripes are the younger, cooler version of the pinstripes.
 These diminishing lines are the answer to all that you are looking for in a fresh look.

TO DO

Buy these on blazers or even on crewnecks. Remember, the more the width of the stripe, the less formal it gets.
