Mariniere Stripes

Remember how my fashion resolution for 2014 was to dress more ‘Parisian’, well one of the essential pieces for this look is whit out a doubt a stripe shirt. For fall the black and white stripe shirt is perfect but for spring/ summer a navy and white combo is the best. If you want one more reason to love this Parisian style staple, besides being super chic, well Coco Chanel herself started this trend.

During one of her trips to the coast, Coco Chanel was so inspired by the French sailors’ uniform that she incorporated the stripes into her collection.

 Here a few tips on how to look amazing wearing the stripes:

  • First and most importantly know your body. Horizontal stripes can be tricky and we all know, just remember the smaller the stripes, the smaller you will look.
  • If you don’t want to look like you are channeling the seas, stay away from nautical accessories.
  • A long gold necklace is a great simple accessory for this look.
