How to Wear Stripes

Some of the strongest colours for the season are actually quite soft in their shades. Across all international catwalks, the presence of tonal dressing was undeniable. Soft, dusty pinks and stone colourways are the protagonists. It's with these neutral palettes that you have the freedom to introduce some stripes to your looks. They're the perfect addition to any smart or casual outfit.

Stripe T-Shirt

Pair a long sleeve Breton T-shirt with our very own viscose pink shirt. Top everything off with a navy lightweight jacket to make that pastel pink really stand out and a pair of wide-legged chinos and suede Wallabee shoes.

Riding the seasonal wave of earthy tones and pastel colours, team up The Idle Man's utility overshirt in stone with a soft jersey T-shirt in pink stripe. You can also add a bit of distressed detail to your outfit by going for a pair of raw hem chinos. Complete the look with a pair of khaki high top Vans to take advantage of the cut off ankle proportion.
