There’s a bevy of stripes happening for Spring 2017. Stripes are popping up on dresses, tops, pants, shoes, bags-you get the picture-pretty much EVERYTHING. Stripes can be super slimming when worn the right way but pick the wrong stripe and you may end up looking 10 pounds heavier and I have NEVER met a woman on this planet that wants that! Here are some simple stripe rules to remember:..
Remember thin stripes have a SLIMMING effect.
Wide stripes and horizontal stripes make an area appear the same aka wider/larger.
Stripes that swirl around the body keep the eye moving and depending on the drape of the fabric can be slimming and uber chic.
When in doubt and you need a pop of print try sporting a stripe printed bag or shoe.
