Whether it be XXL, super skinny, vertical, or horizontal, stripes add a unique allure to any outfit. Standard stripes are a staple in almost every woman’s wardrobe and they are also currently playing a fun and integral part in children’s fashion.
In France, the breton shirt has become and remains a classic. Historically, according to Wikifashion, this shirt was, “a distinctive block pattern of stripes making sailors easier to spot in the waves.” Nowadays, these stripes have become a way for designers to express their creativity. Several brands including Petit Bateau are inspired by stripes throughout their collections. Worn with a mustard yellow skirt or trousers, or more traditionally with a pair of jeans and ballerina shoes, the traditional horizontal navy and white shirt looks fabulous.
This Summer, stripes are changing. Children’s fashion brands are daring to flash stripes in abstract and large forms. Here are a few of our must-have stripes for kids!
