Do the werrk, pay the price; that is how you earn your stripes.Welcome to the last installment of our summer series look book in collaboration with Muna of La Petite Conteur. We chose to showcase stripes as our last and final feature because it is probably the most versatile print that one can work with. From nautical to monochrome minimalism, stripes are so classically timeless that it can easily be transformed into any look. Muna decided to go down the nautical route, but added just enough edge by finishing off her look with a pair of funky disco shorts for a totally updated and modern look. With a matching color scheme, her knee-high socks and navy striped top look as if they were absolutely made for each other. To go the extra mile, Muna also added a hint of quirkiness by rocking her “cross my heart, hope to die, stick a needle in my eye,” oversized sunglasses. I on the other hand was inspired by more of a monochromatic aesthetic. Horizontal stripes are notorious for making one look much wider, however, that is not the case for this top as the various sized lines distracts the eye from seeing the illusion of ‘wideness.’ I also love me a good B&W palette, plus the loose wide-leg fit of the culottes add a sophisticated yet comfortable feeling to the look.
