Fashionista NOW: Women’s Pinstripes Fashion Inspiration

The pinstripe trend, which is classically associated with menswear, has been introduced into women’s collective closets worldwide that you may wonder how does a lady such as your sweet and gentle self sport the trend without looking like a typical dude. Let us help you with that.

From skirts to dresses, blazers to trousers, high fashion designers, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, and Saint Lauren have successfully made the conservative menswear motif into a street wear, coveted by many.

While the typical corporate looks are achieved by wearing matching pinstripe suits, the fashion-forward youth of today prefer to mix the seriousness of a pinstriped blazer, for example with distressed denim shorts.

Others keep it on the quirky realm by wearing a roomy sleeveless pinstripe dress layered over a textured sweater rendered in a bright color to balance out the monotony of the former.

The skort, a hybrid of a skirt and shorts, when rendered in muted pinstripes for instance, showcases this contrasting combination of casual sportiness in design and a mellowed out visual appeal, print-wise.

Still a favorite among fashion bloggers, the skort, which I find utterly awkward is not about to go anywhere and may in fact be quickly returning soon come the sunnier season.

Skorts aside, let us take a cue from lookbookers below on how to wear the pinstripes. From work-appropriate to casual and chic daytime looks, women’s pinstripe trend takes the once rigid only-for-office muted motif straight into the spotlight of modern fashion where all rules are to be broken.
