I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with wearing stripes. They can be incredibly flattering, that is slimming (just so long as they’re vertical), while they also make a strong statement. But if you want to stand out from the crowd with stripes, you’d best take heed of the mantra “bigger is better” as it’s all about being bold. Precaution also has to be taken to ensure that you don’t end up looking like a prison escapee (the look styled so well by Beetlejuice), unless that’s your intention. Frankly, I’ve always loved the film and would rather look like it’s title character than one of those boring clones we see so often on the main streets of every city. So let’s say it 3 times: Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice! It’s Beyond My Control!
I’ve found images, which in my opinion are the most interesting examples of how to wear stripes, and prepared a couple of mood boards with my stripy wish list for this year.
