I love wearing stripes, mostly horizontals but I do have a couple of verticals for the summertime.

When the weather gets too hot and humid, I'll usually pull out these linen blend culottes to run errands and pair them with either of these two vertical stripe tops. The ruffle one is a cotton blend, and the other a linen blend.

Now there is some debate on whether vertical stripes are actually more slimming or not, but I have my doubts about that lol. I just simply enjoy them as a pattern all on their own, they have a certain simplicity and crispness that seems to suit my personal style.

How do you feel about vertical stripes? Do you prefer solids or other patterns instead?
