My friend KB is a sucker for the stripe. She can rock a French sailor boatneck. Seeing KB and Buttons wear stripes last week reminded me of what a happy simple thing a repeated line can be. Stripes ahoy.
The ones who wore it first….Miss Coco Chanel, perhaps?
Or was it this randy genius?
Well, lucky for us you don’t have to be Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn or Pablo Picasso to pull this off. Here are some everyday stripes for everyone.

Hmmmm….He was only 5 foot 4 but no one ever called Pablo Picasso an asshole.
Unless you’re Pablo we don’t advise the menfolk wear french sailor stripes.
