Checks, Tweeds & Stripes

Long embraced to showcase wealth and status, considering how high society embraced tartan and tweeds, small wonder counterculture later embraced; a staple in punk attire since the 1970s, worn as a symbol of rebellion and nonconformity. Striped garments were originally a sign of social deviance (worn by criminals, clowns and prostitutes). Queen Victoria redefined stripes to their rightful place. Subconsciously empowering, stripes convey connotations of boldness and daring. People who love stripes tend to be good at multi-tasking/wear many hats. Go-getters with a strong sense of worth.
