How not to look like you’re dressed for nine-to-five given the formality of pinstripe? Gone are the days when these stripes were for bankers and boardrooms only.  This pattern has been making a comeback for quite a few years now, we go for a sharp look with softer feel.

Think about the finishing touches you’ll add - why be subtle when you can be statement-making? Pulling off the boardroom chalk stripes look with contrasting accessories, the classic pattern has never looked more refined.


Here I’ve teamed the pinstripe with a ruffle sheer choker, with the folds peeking out from the simple white shirt – everything seems surprisingly versatile, yet still a perfect balance of smart and contemporary.
