Horizontal stripe patterns have emerged as a fresh-looking casual trend for both men and women this Spring.  From Burberry to John Varvatos, from American Apparel to Built by Wendy, this trend has manifested itself everywhere from high end fashion houses (hello Michael Bastian and Junya Watanabe) to accessible, affordable chain stores.  Here are a few pieces that do the horizontal stripe pattern well:

Our $$$ Picks:
