The corporate stripes in the year 2021
Whether horizontal, longitudinal, blocks and fine … the slogan ist stripes. Probably the most popular stripes are the longitudinal stripes, which are particularly beneficial for the figure. But also horizontal, block, or very fine stripes enjoy great popularity and are used in many ways. For business wear, gallon stripes are particularly suitable, these give pants an elegant design. Of course, the different stripes can also be combined and mixed with other patterns. Metallic or glitter stripes create a very special look. In 2021/22 we also like to find our favourites on wide straight cut dresses and blouse dresses. With wide stripes, you have to go for good quality. The stripes must meet at the cut edges otherwise the garment looks cheap and less professional.

Whether for leisure, business or festive occasions, with stripes you are always dressed up trendy. In a formal work environment, you cannot go wrong with some dark power suiting and wearing that typical classic pinstripe suit. No better way to tell you are ready to handle business. Opt for a wide leg pants and/or oversized blazer to give this classic suit a creative twist. Wear a colorful top underneath or experiment with accessories like bold shoes. Dress down your festive dress with the pinstripe blazer and give it a professional vibe. Or dress up the pinstripe pants by adding a trendy blouse or top. Make it more casual by wearing your pants with cosy knits.
