STRIPE IT UP!

Many fashion stylists and insiders believe that curvy girls should stay away from horizontal stripes because they say it makes you look bigger. I have always disagreed with this fashion don’t, because you have to take into consideratio the fabric, color, style, and width of the stripes. Yes, I do believe all horizontal stripes are not created equal, you just have to find the right cut and style for your body.

Let’s say you have a round stomach and you like a t-shirt style dress that has large horizontal stripes that hit you right at the largest part of your waist, to detract attention from that area you could wear a long necklace or choose a fitted one button blazer or long grandpa cardigan to wear with it.

If you have allowed this so called fashion rule to stop you from buying horizontal stripes then it’s time for you to do away with that pesky rule and dive into some of springs classic and colorful horizontal striped pieces.
