Earn Your Autumnal Stripes

COOL CONTRASTS

It almost feels silly to talk about stripes as an “in” trend. Have stripes ever been out? 

Stripes unfailingly reappear each season as designers debut a new way to see this beloved pattern. There are new colors, varying directions, widths both great and small. And yet, we always come back to traditional black or navy with white stripes. The contrast is pleasing to the eye and recalls the Breton striped shirts worn by French sailors from way back in the late 1800s.

We selected 7 of our favorite striped pieces for the fall season—decadent fur coats and cozy sweaters, to name a few—that are ripe for the mixing. Pair them with bold colors and prints, or keep it simple and rock them with your favorite black jeans.
