Well, what about we take a look at how the stripes were introduced to the fashion world?
Stripes that were not considered as a distinguished pattern since they were once used only for the prisoners became suddenly popular when the British Queen Victoria had his 4-year-old son Albert Edward wear a sailor suit in 1846.
Afterwards, stripes were started to be used in navy men costumes. This was followed by 21 striped ‘Breton’ models used to refer to Napoleon’s victories. In 20th Century, Coco Chanel started to sell its French t-shirts at her Deauville (France) shop in 1917. Stripes that did not lose popularity since they were often worn by the artists like Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, etc. are both sporty and elegant and are continuing to be the apple of the eye for all styles.
