The fashion trends for men keep changing and so do the types of stripes. They are one of the most popular fashion trends which never go out of style, customisable in various design and sizes.

Many guys want to express their style statement with more than just solid colors, but bold patterns can be worrisome to carry off – in order to fight these dilemmas, stripes can be a perfect solution. Stripes can also be more stylish and can set you apart from the masses that would go for regular solid white or blue colors.

Pinstripe pants are very popular. Pair them with a solid shirt, and an overcoat giving you a sophisticated look for your next business meeting.

 

3) Checks

From the very classic Prince of Wales to oversized windowpanes. These patterns are famous among the well-known designers and they have included it in some of their best collections.

Checks gave new hope to tailored suits and when it comes to wearing such pattern, one should definitely know their limits. Some men may consider subtle or entry level checks while some may completely restrict themselves in wearing such pattern.

Checks can be experimented at your workplace or you can opt for suits with fine checks with colors such as navy blue or black, especially if you’re looking for something casual and want to maintain that formal look as well.
