Anyone who has picked up a fashion magazine this spring knows that stripes are back with a vengeance. Back? Now that’s plain silly, since our old friend the stripe never really left!
Be they chevron, zigzag, fat or thin, the stripe is ensconced in our fashion history, our culture and our hearts. We at Graphique pay homage this spring to the iconic stripe with the launch of our Flavor Stripe Collection! A whimsical take on nautical, our jewel tone stripes have arrived just in time for spring/summer 2013.
Flavor Stripe meets some of our favorite core products – purse notes, pens and journals…. but our stripes really shine in our beach worthy, street wise tote!
Ok, we know what you’re about to ask. How do I WEAR stripes? It’s all fun and games as a pen, or a notebook, but stripes as a bag? It seems daunting, right? Never fear, help is here.
Helpful hint #1 – A white t-shirt and jeans are a stripe’s best friend.
Any configuration of white top and blue on bottom will work. Make it preppy, go boho, wherever your style lands is fine – your stripes will say the rest!
Helpful hint #2 – Color loves company!
Any striped item in your closet will benefit from a friendship with solid pieces of like-minded colors. Bold is beautiful and color is “in” so go for matching or enhancing stripes with your favorite shoes, pants, even nail polish!
Helpful hint #3 – Stripes are for all!
This classic pattern looks great on all ages, shapes and sizes. From maternity wear to baby clothes, bow ties and beyond, the stripe proves itself fun and fabulous on just about everyone. Don’t be afraid. Stripes don’t bite!
So there you have it folks. Love em’ or leave em’, stripes are here to stay…and all of us at Graphique couldn’t be happier!
