Worn on my wrist to show the proportions
The prison stripe trend has been around for a few years now, usually in black and white, sometimes in cream and black and I have to admit that I couldn't get behind it for a long time. I think it's a hard look for most people to pull off, especially in a wardrobe staple piece like pants or a shirt, but every once in a while I see it done right, in a lux fabric and on the right body type, and it looks fantastic. If I personally tried to wear a prison striped outfit I would look like I escaped from a chain gang, but this one relatively small accessory at the back of my head seemed feasible. I like that the black is toned down with the rich cream color, and the combination reminds me of Henri Bendel's shopping bags, which are always a welcome sight.
So far my prison striped bow has gotten thumbs up from my friends and not a single comment about jail....
