First appearing on garments in medieval times, stripes were a sign of social deviance (worn by criminals, clowns and prostitutes). It took Queen Victoria to redefine stripes to their rightful place. Stripes subconsciously empower… they convey connotations of boldness and daring; a willingness to test the boundaries. People who love stripes tend to be good at multi-tasking, have a lot going on in their lives and wear many hats. So if you’re drawn to stripes, chances are you’re a go-getter, with a strong sense of worth.
