Open your closet door. White. Blue. Blue and white stripes. Sound familiar? For a fresh fall look try some checks on your shirts for size. Fancy checks. Windowpanes. Tattersalls. I don't care what, so long as you try. If you want, start slow. Opt for a white ground with a blue pattern.
As you gain confidence, step it up with lavender, a multi color check, or a burnt orange for fall. By keeping a white ground, you're maintaining a sense of conservatism while concurrently expanding you're horizons. Or if you're a bit more dashing, ditch the white and go with some color. Now that's something to fall for.
