Save Steal Splurge: the Striped Sweater

There’s an old saying that horizontal stripes aren’t the most flattering pattern you can wear. And while sure, there are great ways to give yourself a sleek line and color block some optical illusions into your outfit, but we say embrace the stripe. After all, it’s a staple on the French Riviera, it’s got plenty of fans that are all shapes and sizes and when done right, stripes make a big impact with little effort on your part. Just keep the shapes simple and straightforward if you want to go with big bold stripe and you’ll be in the clear. For more complicated and complex pieces, we say stick with a pinstripe or something more subtle.

However you choose to wear your stripes, just keep the rest of your outfit simple to stay tr¨s chic.
