Stripes—-one of the biggest trends this spring!
A classical, timeless, fun and edgy piece, stripes make another comeback this season. Only bigger, bolder…even more colorful, and versatile.
From classic mod stripes (Michael Kors), to whimsical nautical stripes (Vivienne Westwood), Bohemian stripes (Dolce and Gabbana), chevron stripes (Jonathan Saunders), Warholian stripes (Marc Jacobs)… even elegantly-striped gowns (Oscar de la Renta)!
Some tips on how to wear stripes:
*Choose pieces that accentuate your waist.
*Don’t let stripes overwhelm your figure.
*For petites, vertically striped pants or skirts can make you look taller when worn with a solid-colored top.
*For dresses, avoid horizontal stripes that widen your shape.
*If you have a boyish figure horizontal stripes will give the illusion of curves. This helps enhance your proportion with distortion.
*Darker colors are more slimming than lighter ones.
