Pri’s Fashion Diary: The Stripes

Pri’s Fashion Diary: The Stripes

February 15, 2013 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-Ellis

The stripes are an on and off trend, however it has been around for a long time. First introduced with the nautical look by Coco Chanel in the 1920’s, the horizontal stripes were a distinctive look worn by fisherman’s.

This was a revolutionary look as Chanel introduced an elegant, feminine look to a masculine trend of the time.

I love this trend as I strongly believe that anyone can pull it off.

So the tip is do not dispose your nautical pieces after the trend cools down, it will certainly come back and you can rock it every time. Also watch out for the polka dots as it will add a lush, quirky edge to this trend.
