Stripes are never out of style. From the instant Parisian chic of the Breton top to the sleek menswear-inspired pinstripe, this print is a perennial favourite for a reason. A staple of haute couture collections from the likes of Yves Saint Laurent and Comme des Garcons, and the shelves of high-street favourites like Topshop, the stripe is here to stay. In The Art of Stripes, learn how to style your stripes and pair patterns like a pro. Go nautical with navy or clash with checks and florals. For androgyny with a twist, wear a pinstriped shirt backwards or tied around yourself for a softer look. Take on the colour-blocking trend with technicolour stripes, and make an impact with leg-lengthening vertically striped trousers. Featuring profiles on iconic stripe wearers such as Jean Seberg, Alexa Chung and Brigitte Bardot, you'll never be short of inspiration. Beautifully illustrated by Libby VanderPloeg, this book makes the perfect gift for any fashionista who has earned their stripes.
