There's a loose, boxy, black and white striped shirt in my closet that gets worn just about every week. It's a fairly thin fabric, so I know it will soon be on its way to retirement, even though it's less than a year old. But damn, do I love that shirt. I can't think of a better pairing than simple black and white. It's bold, it's graphic, but also super neutral. Wear it on your body year-round, furnish your home with it, hang it as art. Mix it with patterns and call it a day. A tip for your wardrobe: depending on the width of a b&w stripe, it pairs surprisingly well with floral, camouflage, and even leopard print!
