Stripes and I have this love hate relationship. I see them hanging in stores, or worn by cute girls are the street and I absolutely adore them. Then I get into the dressing room and I am always disappointed. Why is it that stripes look so much better on others than they do on me?
Well, what I finally decided is, one, it is mostly in our head…you do look good in stripes (most of the time) and two, it totally depends on the detail of the stripe. Are they thick or thin, horizontal or vertical? What color is the stripe against your skin tone? All the little details about the stripe are pretty crucial to whether or not you are going to actually go through with the purchase.
With our SS14 line, we used two different kinds of stripes, and designed them so many ways that you are bound to find something that fits your liking.
First off, our stripes are dark: grey and black to keep them as simple as possible. Second, our stripes are vertical so that we do not look any wider than we already feel. And finally, we placed cut and sew in many of the patterns so that the entire garment wasn’t overdone with stripes aka looking like a prison jumpsuit.
If you are feeling adventurous try the Louie in Stripe or the Shameless in Stripe. If you want to try something a little bit more subtle, check out the Charlie in Stripe or the Misfit with Stripe. Trust us, there are tons of choices to spicen up your workout wardrobe.
We are always trying to mix fashion and functionality into our fitness wear. The important thing is that you are always comfortable in the clothes that you are in. We try to do that, stripes or not.
Hope you like it!
