Stripes have always been easy to wear and look great.

Summer’s menswear collections have seen designers revamp the traditional Parisian and Breton stripe with bold colours and variegated, vertical stripes created impact on the catwalk.

You’ll find stripes everywhere from formal tailoring to casual t-shirts and knitwear. They work perfectly in both formal and casual situations and vertical stripes can create the illusion that you’re taller and slimmer that you actually are, making this wardrobe staple suitable for all shapes and sizes.

Stick to one key piece for an easy wardrobe update. Pairing stripes with stripes gives an edgier look, but unless this is a shirt and suit look, there’s a danger people may assume you’re wearing your pyjamas.
