    The Stripes: An All-Time Classic

All of us women, including myself, wore a different version of a striped shirt. We did not arrange this beforehand. It’s not so weird at all! Here’s why: To this day the striped top is within the most popular pieces. There are SO many variations of it that they can make your head spin!
