Balenciaga, Gucci, and Altuzarra can’t be wrong! Veronika proves the new vertical stripes are well worth a try

You’re used to be wearing stripes. Your favorite? Le classique et très français breton sweater from Petit Bateau, Saint James, or Armor Lux with its signature blue horizontal stripes – or, if you are a bit more adventurous, green, red, or yellow (like my mom)! However, vertical stripes are something you never tried. You’re not fully convinced, and you have always heard that they are not necessarily flattering.

This is when I come in and, ladies and gentlemen, introduce you to these fabulous pants by Acne Studios – worn here by Veronika during Haute Couture earlier this summer. Best worn with a simple top, these stripes are no longer bleu azur and horizontal. Rather, the longer and the brighter, the better.

Seen at Balenciaga, Gucci, Altuzarra, and many more – one thing is sure, they are colorful and come in all sizes. Vertical stripes. It’s worth giving it a try!
