Stripes can be intimidating for most men, but when worn in the right style and mixed properly, it’s a great look guaranteed to turn heads this summer. Follow a few basic rules, and you can wear stripes with confidence.
Blue and white stripes work best. It’s a classic look. A more dapper man might want to try striped trousers, just be sure to carefully consider the rest of the outfit.
The nautical feel makes them a perfect choice for a summer outing or of relaxing by or on the beach. Stripes don’t have to be worn in the conventional sense, think pinstripes or vertical striped button down, polo or shorts. Just not both.
To complete the look go with a nice cuff, neutral pocket square, or an ankle break on the pant leg. The look is incredibly polished as well as fun. Patterns are one of this summer’s top trends, so embrace the stripes, and incorporate a fun suit, blazer, pants, or shirt into your spring and summer wardrobe!
