Stripes are Back for Spring: Here's How to Wear Them Without Looking Like the Hamburglar

In medieval times, stripes were the province of clowns, prostitutes, and hangmen. And for good reason—they're not the easiest pattern to pull off. But this season, labels from Givenchy to Burberry demonstrated just how good they can look, sending stripes of all ilks—from vertical and extra-wide to mariner-inspired—down the runways.

Take this unlined cotton blazer by Savile Row stalwart Hardy Amies. Paired with the right streamlined basics, like this ultrasoft and breathable Brioni knit and lived-in jeans, the look hardly screams Hamburglar. The rule is simple: Much as Picasso, Lennon, and Cobain did, wear your stripes with confidence.
