You think you can’t wear stripes. Stripes make you look fatter than you are. Its a myth, girls. You CAN wear stripes and not look like a circus tent. You just need to know how! Stripes are classic, ladylike and work with everything. Except pants. Please consider striped pants always a no.
Now let’s get real. Striped shirts are a fabulous way to add some pattern and color to your wardrobe. Don’t wear anything tight – if you have any rolls showing, it will just… emphesize things. Go for a loose button down or a striped tee layered under another shirt.
While designers are fond of pairing wide stripes with thin stripes, and stripes with florals and such – this is not something that most of us can pull off in everyday life. Generally stick to one pattern and one solid. Striped skirts are darling – they can really flatter your curves! Striped dresses can be really tricky – stick to really wide horizontal stripes, diagnoal or stay vertical.
