    The horizontal stripes are very stylish. I have many blouses with them.

    I recognize most of these photos. I love horizontal stripes and have many tops like “marinieres.”
    The top left photo and the bottom right on the first panel are my favorites.
    I love the 2nd and last photo on the second panel.

    These posts are really great! Sometimes you need more than one image to inspire a certain look and these do that really well. Keep them coming!

    Love the new stripes-trend!
    Classy, chic and basic at the same time!
    And that girl on the fourth picture is gorgeous!

    Who isn’t thinking about horizontal stripes these days? Or any days? That coat is certainly an original and impressive way to do it!

    amazing! same colour schemes same layering effect-inspiration right here


    October 18, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    My daughter has forbidden me, on pain of death, from buying any more stripes. She tells me the washing line after I’ve done a wash is like a nautical nightmare. But I don’t care! I shall carry on regardless.

    I love this series. The only thing that would make it even better (I think) is for each picture to have a bigger space so that they can be seen more clearly.

    Scott, thanks so much for these “If you’re thinking about” posts. They have truly been inspirational. Keep ‘em coming, please!

    I have always loved horizontal stripes. Perfect as a tee, with slacks and a blazer.

    Ooh thankyou, I can’t tell you how much I love these posts! I can feel a book coming on with these spreads too!? :-)

    For some reason it makes all the looks more accessible and applicable to my daily outfit inspiration, the sheer number of photos you post often means a favourite look can get lost before I have a chance to bookmark!

    So with that I am off to put on my breton top and with some blue skinny’s and oversized wool camel blazer.

    I like singular photos taking up the whole page. They are powerful and focus on the individual. It is fashion portraiture.

    I don’t come to this site to see “trends” that many people are wearing at the same time. Do away with this new type of “If you’re thinking about” post please.

      Two things, Scott – when replying directly to someone’s comment, it would be nice to see their comment above the LEAVE A COMMENT box (as opposed to directly over top), because as I type this, it’s hard to remember exactly what I’m reply-commenting on. That being said, what I like about the new feature is just seeing variations on the same theme – whether you’re really posting trend or not, it’s a great way to see different ways to wear something all of us likely have .. so with that in mind, I love it. Thank you.

    I blink, and stripes are in, I blink again, and stripes aren’t in. But then I blink again…..

    I’ve always been shy with stripes but I wore a very nice beige and black horizontal striped shoulder bag all summer long and got so many compliments. I might incorporate some in my clothes now…..

    I regret all those years I spent thinking that I couldn’t wear horizontal stripes because I wasn’t tiny enough. So glad I’ve embraced them!

    Wonder what fashion myth will be dispelled next…
