In fact, Marc Jacobs pretty much stole the show when it came to stripes. Should you be worried about looking wide? Don’t. You can always wear diagonal stripes that will have a slimming effect.”
By the way, Marc by Marc Jacobs designed for his ready-to-wear collection at Nordstrom downtown PDX a super cute Moto jacket complete with wide, streaky stripes that lend a breezy, chic seaside feel complete with biker-inspired details.
