Fashion Trend - Stripes

June 25, 2014

I love stripes and they can not be missed in my wardrobe. I am in love with this ladylike black and white striped dress. The unconventional mix of stripes gives it a modern touch. The black and white stripe trend is really timeless. It allows you to go bold while keeping things classy and basic.

If you have concerns about wearing stripes, here are some tips on how to choose the right stripe pattern to flatter your figure.
Vertical stripes - The petite woman can elongate her figure with vertical stripes. If you are petite in height with full figure  keep the stripe vertical, and choose a smaller stripe. If you are petite and on the thin side, a bolder stripe will make you look a bit bigger.

Horizontal stripes - The slim woman who would like to look a bit more curvy can choose a bold, horizontal stripe.

Diagonal stripes - Most figure types can wear diagonal stripes. This option is especially good for the plus size women.
