When it comes to wearing stripes, don’t be afraid! Yes there is a right and wrong way to wear them so don’t get caught on the “What Not To Wear” list. Here are some simple tips to keep in mind when it comes to shopping for and wearing stripes!
1. Vertical stripes are your friend. If you want to elongate a look, vertical is always better. However, if you do go the horizontal route, look for a dress that has dark side panels, like my white and blue H&M dress. The dark side panels will create the illusion of a smaller figure focusing primarily on the stripes. Adding a cute heel, like these blue and red Tommy Hilfiger corked sandals will add a fun element to your outfit and also add a little extra color.
2. For my petite friends, too many stripes could take over your small frame. I recommend a striped crop top and a solid high waisted skirt to elongate your legs and create the illusion of being a little taller.
3. For a fuller figure, you want to focus on the smallest part of your body. If you’re leaner on top with fuller hips try adding a striped top tucked into a full skirt that accentuates your waist.
