Stripes come and go, but this spring, stripes are back in a new way. Usually, we're used to seeing horizontal stripes making us think of sailor’s shirts, but this season we’ll be seeing more vertical stripes. We’re seeing pants, cardigans, button-ups and more with vertical stripes, and a lot of them thicker than usual. Take these Gucci pants, for example, worn by fashion Youtuber @sangiev , they have thick black and white stripes running down them, or the Stussy button up, featuring a nice wide Cuban collar. But, my favorite striped piece is the cardigan worn by Playboy Carti, the Supreme Micro-Stripe cardigan. Although the colorway he is wearing is a combination of purple, blue and black, I prefer the black and white version. Now, who is to blame for all these stripes? Haider Ackermann. Ackermann, originally popularized by the likes of Kanye West, has incorporated the stripes over the last two seasons in everything from socks to robes. Expect to see a lot more vertical stripes this spring.
