Let’s talk stripes, either you like them or you don’t but there’s no in between. I actually happen to be a fan of stripes.

Let me give you some insight on stripes before you determine if stripes are for you.

If you want the allusion of appearing taller then vertical stripes will definitely give you that appearance.

If you’re wearing horizontal stripes, be aware that it gives you a wider appearance. Also note, the smaller the stripe, the slimmer you will appear and for the opposite, the wider the stripe, the wider you will appear.

It’s okay to mix the direction of the stripes although everyone will not be able to pull this look off, it’s definitely not for everyone. So if you want to play it safe, opt for stripes with a solid color. I enjoy adding a pop of red to the traditional black and white combo.

And if you really want to mix it up, try mixing patterns. Add the stripes along with polka dots, it will work well together as long as they both have the same color palette.

  1. Strips is really fantastic trend and when worn right always looks great but the tricky part about strips is that you have to really match what you wear because strips don’t blend with everything.
