I never write trend posts (like never ever) but it's hard to ignore a trend as popular and pervasive as the bold black and white stripe. I first took notice last spring when Taylor Tomasi Hill sported striped Celine pants during Milan Fashion Week. Somehow a pattern associated with cabana tents and jailhouse jumpsuits became a chic fashion statement. Of course, stripes have been around forever. The key difference: thick, substantial, vertical bands. There’s nothing subtle about the new stripe!
