Anyone who knows me knows about my obsession for stripes. You can always count on Crimson Mim to have many, many striped items. As I write this, we currently have 24 different striped items on the floor, including tees (of course), skirts, dresses, button up shirts, cashmere sweaters, a pair of pumps, Turkish towels and a blazer!
Stripes are flattering (contrary to a popular belief) and chic. Nothing much else looks more pulled together than a pair of white jeans, a blue blazer and a striped tee. Add a scarf and a pair of oxfords or simple pumps and you’ll be the chic-est woman on the block (if not your entire town).
Style icons such as Inès de la Fressange, Audrey Hepburn, Sofia Coppola, Leandra Medine (the Man Repeller), and Emmanuelle Alt (Editor in Chief of French Vogue) regularly incorporate stripes, in traditional and unusual ways, into their looks.

Heck, stripes are so amazing, they’re even on our flag.
In my humble opinion, there is no such thing as having too many stripes!
