How to Style Stripes this Season

PHOTOGRAPHY BY MATHILDE AGIUS

“Like many women, I have always loved the crisp, graphic quality of stripes,” reveals Raquel Franco, Founder of Body Editions. “I think it’s interesting how this iconic pattern has become synonymous with creativity. Many pioneering artists, from Picasso to Andy Warhol, wore a Breton shirt, so it’s almost become ingrained in our style consciousness,” she adds. The Body Editions Stripes Collection provides a contemporary ode to the classic motif. Whether horizontal or vertical (or both), we consider the multifarious ways these luxe, linear bodies can be styled through spring and beyond.

Masculine trousers with a high-waisted cut give the feminine Leonora bodysuit a dapper twist. Tactile textures, such as plush velvet or corduroy also add interest.

Double the impact by pairing stripes with stripes. Here, the Leonora bodysuit makes a chic and irreverent counterpoint to a pair of Beetlejuice-style jeans.

You can bank on this perennial style pairing. Tailored black trousers and classic court shoes underscore the Anna bodysuit with elegance and ease.
