I've been doing that since 2009, I really don't think I need more striped tops. OK maybe a striped racer back tank top. But THEN I'm done.

^^stripes are definitely more of a classic rather than something new...
but you have to admit..
designers have been doing them in lots of cool new ways recently

I'm in Madrid at the moment and the shops are full of striped stuff! It seems all they have is navy & white striped dresses, tops, skirts, etc... I simply can't NOT buy anything. But I feel like it's getting too trendy, I don't wanna run around looking like the worst fashion victim only because I wear my standard uniform of navy/white stripes...

Stripes are a classic, especially in the spring/summer season.

I don't remember a spring without stripes or flowers (especially since the month of May) or a summer without white clothing.
The stripes exit since the day someone dyed a thread with a different color. There are plenty of striped flags and there are teams from all kinds of sports wearing stripes every time they play.

Stripes, especially in navy/white, are a way of saying “hello” to the spring season. It is just the French fisherman’s traditional cloth, the Breton jersey, already appreciated by Coco Chanel and then by Jean Paul Gaulthier.

Yes, Prada has proposed stripes for this season, but for me it is not trendy, but very traditional. Change the color, thickness, position... but it's the same idea.

I'm also a fan of stripes. Great thread. For some reason I prefer horizontal stripe tees. I like when it's done with a clean, and crisp look.

Agreed! I buy APC's striped tees every single season & have since collected about 5 of them. They're easy classics that will stand the test of time.

I'm gonna get my hands on the Prada fur stoles too, in navy/white.
