The Pattern Every Guy Can Wear
BY CHRISTINE FLAMMIA
Break away from a bland wardrobe by adding some patterns to it. We’re not talking anything crazy, here. Instead, refresh your wardrobe by revisiting a classic: stripes.
Black and white or black and navy stripes tend to have a preppy, nautical feel, but you don’t need to be on a yacht to pull it off. Even though it is a pattern, the colors themselves are neutral—so you can treat the striped piece of clothing as such too. Black and white stripes pair well with all colors, but also they’re also an easy choice for wearing with jeans. Here are three of the best ways to add it into your look.
A lightweight bomber jacket is the perfect outer layer for spring. One with thin, vertical stripes adds an easy detail to your look. It also doesn’t take up the entire jacket, and the bare sleeves make the stripes stand out without being overbearing. This jacket from Rag & Bone feels like a stylish baseball jacket. We’re here for it.
Pinstripe pants aren’t just for suits. A loose-fit trouser in a navy pinstripe is a more casual way to wear the normally buttoned-up look. This blogger styled his with a collared sweatshirt, which looks both tailored and laidback. He kept the rest of the look simple with white socks and sneakers.

And of course, a striped T-shirt is the easiest way to wear this look. Wear it whenever you’d normally go for a navy or white shirt; the subtle pattern will break up the look and make it feel fresh. Stripes look cool alone, layered under a sport coat, or paired with olive green outerwear.
