Fashion Over Reason: Pining For Pinstripe

Pining For Pinstripe

Bailey of Hollywood burgundy wide brim hat

The topic of dressing for cold weather is getting to be a recurring subject on this blog, but the season is nowhere near over and therefore an ongoing issue. When you're lucky enough to live in a place where winter is not inflicted with snow, you can still wear normal shoes even if you need to bundle up (read: retain your sense of style pride), which is thankfully the case in NYC most of the time. We shot these photos on an extremely cold, windy day but somehow being on the beautiful streets of peaceful Tribeca made up for it.

Moving right along onto a more interesting subject: the pinstripe trend. It became one of the season's biggest must-haves when Stella put it down the runway and admittedly, when Stella says jump, I say how high. There was no way I wasn't partaking in what was to become the pinstripe craze. While the actual stripes I'm sporting are teeny weeny and barely visible, these super cute cropped newsboy shape pants are indeed in the trendy pattern typically reserved for menswear. What are your thoughts on pinstripes?

Waaah Helene, you make styling these pants look effortless! They're definitely a shape I'd personally run a mile from. And that hat is literally the icing on top of a fabulous cake.

I would love to be wearing something like this. Very big-city bohemian somehow. I think it's the hat and coat that do it :)

I must admit, weather-wise, I don't mind the snow at all, and it's the rain that I cannot stand when it comes to dressing up.
The outfit is wonderful! And I love the pinstripe, too. I don't see it as a trend, but rather a timeless classic. x
