Unexpected Ways To Style Stripes For Spring

Seeing more and more striped clothing flood the stores always signify the arrival of spring. From your daily office wear to Sunday brunch, strips can definitely perk up your mood as it does your wardrobe. This year, stripes have moved beyond the basic black and white striped t-shirt that we know and love, combining the classic pattern with more complex shapes, colours, details and silhouettes.

Here are some new ways to try stripes this year:

Bows and Knots

Little details such as bows, knots, or open backs give the classic white and blue stripe shirt a little boost.
