Runway Rules 8:43 – Anything ca n work if done right… i have believed that since grade 8 in English class when the teacher asked the class do you think this story would have worked from this persons point of view. Lots of people said no but i said why not.
I have stuck with that mentality since then and it has served me well!
Common denominator to the three people in the pics? They are all on the slim slide. Yes, our retailers have wonderful stuff with horizontal stripes, but if one is packing some extra poundage (as yours truly), please abstain!!! Love the yellow boots, btw!
That’s the Italian lady you featured recently, on her way to …fishing shrimps!
Joke aside, the best stiped t-shirts are the authentic French sailor ones, from Brittany. Look for Saint-James (one of the good brands). My husband, who si American, bought one at a boat show and he pulls it off very nicely.
Apologies for the non-sartorial rabbit trail, but does the photo of gentleman #1 remind anyone else of Bob from Twin Peaks, in one of television’s all-time scariest scenes? That’s why I find it a bit unsettling.
Making the photo that much more interesting, of course :)
The first shot is incredible and his pants make me smile. They do look like pajamas though. As for the middle chap, I echo the same sentiments as other commenter’s–he needed his own full shot. His shorts are very interesting and his frames are beautiful. I can see the Harry Potter likeness.
I definitely think horizontal stripes are workable. I just captured a young chap in St. Louis on my street style blog donning a horizontal striped shirt similar to the chap in the second picture so the trend is well recognized!
Horizontal stripes for me are just boring unless they are broken up in an interesting or witty way. Horizontal striped leggings on a grown man even if he is wearing a cool pink shirt should be outlawed.
