Pinstripes: The one style trend we saw everywhere

Pinstripes: The one style trend we saw everywhere

I recently saw LBB Delhi’s post on all high-street brands going on sale, which reminded me of the last time I went shopping. Contrary to who I used to be six years ago, I find shopping very taxing at times. And I’ll tell you why: I pick up a top and see the same style in another store, making me doubt my purchase.

The one style that I saw everywhere and I mean all two floors of Select Citywalk and DLF Saket: pinstripes.

A pattern that has been associated with no particular fashion movement, in particular, pinstripes are the uniform of the Brookes Brother man I happen to come across on Instagram. You know, like that guy in your office who’s channeling Harvey Spectre.

That’s because there is something so complementing and unoffensive about pinstripes that the wearer can’t go wrong.

The history of pinstripes

Traditionally, there are only two ways to do pinstripes: light on dark, meaning ivory geometrical stripes on ink blue or dark stripes on light fabrics.

But what if there was a third way to wear pinstripes? In summers? It’s called light on light. OK I just made that up.

Blue, one of the most comfortable colors to wear for everybody, and I mean all of us, in all waist and bust sizes is mostly kept as the base while white take on the work of striping.

What you get, is an easy, peasy, lemon, squeezy, summer fashion trend.

How Be For Beauty Wore Pinstripes

Pinstripes, specifically, light on light pinstripes were there everywhere. We found off-shoulder tops, off-shoulder shirts, full-sleeved shirts, pussy bow shirts, capped sleeved with pinstripes and lots more. Pinstripe dresses were also available in fit and flare, maxi dresses, bodycon and more.

Pragati decided to embrace her love for comfort, and her love for looking smart casual attire opted for a pinstriped dress from H&M India. She’s always wearing Converse on her feet.

Since the front of the neck doesn’t leave room for a choker, she wore a three tier string necklace from ONLY, her new watch from Michael Kors and her sunglasses which are thankfully stolen now.

As for me, I decided to dress a bit formally for my taste. Since I get to work in my PJs, I decided to raid my sister’s suitcase for a half-sleeved, pinstriped shirt which too turned out to be from H&M Switzerland. I paired that with my skinny fit white trousers from Jabong.

Since it was super hot (read 42 degrees) and my hair looked great, I didn’t put on any accessories except my sunnies. My sketchers are from H&M too!
