D&G: Get in Line

Despite my natural dislike of stripes on clothing, I find the stripes on this D&G dress architecturally intriguing. Vertical stripes are much more redeeming than horizontal ones (why would anyone want to look a mile wide?), and the uneven paths of these lines center the wearer, rather than spread her out. The juxtaposition of casual khaki linen with precise black lines creates a sharp, modern take on a traditionally relaxed fabric. $625 for pre-order at Neiman Marcus.
