Pinstripes are something like the evergreen of fashion – they’ve been gone for a long time and then they become trendy again. Like now. The thin stripes on suit fabric have a long history in the fashion world and have freed themselves from their conservative image in recent years. In the past they were mainly found in men’s suits, but today pinstripes are also worn by women – as feminist statement towards the male-dominated business elitefor whom pinstripe suits were the symbol par excellence.
The different types of pinstripes
Pinstripes are as diverse as fashion itself. There are different types of pinstripes that you should know about. The two main types are Chalk stripes and warp threads. Fine pinstripes that stand out clearly from the background are created by two warp threads that are clearly arranged at the same distance and thus stand out from the usually dark background.
Chalk stripes, on the other hand, are often found on wool-like fabrics or flannel. In contrast to pinstripes, the stripe here is blurred and more subtle and looks like it has been drawn on the fabric with chalk.
Pinstripes today – more than just business
The days when pinstripes were only worn in a business context are long gone. Modern young women and girls have long since adopted the look and now wear pinstripes in a playful, ironic way and of course outside of the office – and that’s great!
Pinstripes – this is how you can style them
► The pinstripe dress: A pinstripe dress is a timeless classic and a must-have for every woman. It can be combined with high heels for an elegant look or with sneakers for a casual touch.
