I have always been a fan of piping. It's one of those dress maker details that can bring a boring blouse or jacket to life. Usually I only see it on jackets. I even own an awesome J.Crew wool jacket with black piping, and it's my favorite blazer I own. I look like Hermione Granger in it, which is secretly a compliment to me because I LOVE Harry Potter. haha!
Through the lens of Pinterest, I'm starting to see this detail on summer blouses and dresses! With the INSANE stripe, chevron and geometric craze, this is a more subtle way to create linear and horizontal lines and stay on trend.
