Stripes: Design That Will Never Disappoint You

From road signs to catwalks, stripes are everywhere. When it comes to the event planning industry, it is no exception either. To tell the truth, there is nothing surprising about it – iconic and versatile, this timeless design can easily revamp your décor without making it tiresome. In this blog, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about stripes, and what they have to do with our online store.

Where Do They Come from?

Though there is nothing more classic than stripes, striped clothing used to carry negative connotations in Western cultures. Rewinding the time back to the Medieval era – it was only criminals, clowns, or prostitutes that wore a garment with black and white stripes, which were seen as evil. Luckily, in the nineteenth century, a new definition of stripes was finally created after Queen Victoria dressed her son in a striped sailor suit. Stripes were then connected with everything nautical and became extremely popular with swimmers.

It was the beginning of the twentieth century when stripes became a mainstream design. Inspired by the French Riviera workers’ uniform, Coco Channel adopted those iconic white and navy stripes in her designs. Later in the 20th century, striped clothing was worn by almost everybody from Marylin Monroe to Pablo Picasso. During the ‘60s and the ‘70s, stripes acquired rebellious connotations and were worn by those who questioned the fashion authority.

  • Commit to Striped Patterns You Love

If you found a striped pattern of your dreams, you can repeat it throughout your space. Let’s take this picture for example. In addition to that much-needed continuity and flow that these linens give, they also add a major wow factor. However, in order to make sure that stripes take a central stage, keep the surroundings neutral.

Besides the tips mentioned above, we strongly recommend you mix stripes with polka dots, as well as floriated and animal prints – just stick within the same color palette. On top of that, stripes are more dramatic with a hit of solid mixed in.
