The wide sized stripes that are evenly spaced with a solid background is the staple of a nautical striped look. It is ideal for creating a formal look such as a workwear outfit.

This is one of my favorites and a true style icon. Since its origin as a French naval uniform pattern, it is a street style favorite for modern fashionistas. It is also versatile since you can style it glam, casual or a little in between.

This particular type of stripes is my go-to as of late. I am drawn to the feminine detail of the pin stripes. It is the perfect choice for casual silhouttes such as a jumpsuit, romper or wide leg pants. It is recommended if you want a classic yet modern style.

The resemblance to a barcode makes this type of stripes so unique and eye-catching. It is characterized by different sized stripes in one pattern. This is a good choice to bring an eye-catching flair to a simple striped outfit.
