While following fashion trends is fabulously fun, keeping up with the newest style can be like gambling: an addictive, wallet-depleting game. Contagiously dominating the runway, the great thing about this spring’s fashion fad is its timelessness and versatility. Stripes have been in, are in, and will always be in.

If you don’t need it on board your flight, pack the conveniently compact bag in your luggage and simply unfold when you’re ready to sport your sassy stripes!
