Hello beautiful people hope you are having a great day. Can you believe we are literally half way through the year already!
Today, I am talking about stripes, stripe shirts to be more precise, the trend that has stormed it's way into our wardrobes in every style that we can ever possibly imagine this season.
Luckily, stripes have moved beyond the classic navy-and-white nautical trend whether vertical, horizontal, asymmetrical, thick or skinny.
For years, our mothers, sisters, friends or even fashion magazines, have cautioned us against horizontal stripes, stating that they do the female figure no favours. As a result, many women have spent their entire lives avoiding horizontal hoops for the fear of looking fat. Yes, even though it’s the truth, you need to understand that horizontal stripes tend to make one look broader; not fatter! And with a clever sartorial mind, we all can find ways to wear them.
For any body shape, the goal is always to create a balance. Vertical stripes create length, while horizontal stripes create width. So, if you have a pear-shaped body, avoid wearing horizontal stripes on your lower half and if you have a heart-shaped body, wear vertical striped tops to create the illusion of length, but do not wear a blouse and a pants that encompass stripes of different colours and widths. If you are unsure of pulling it off with confidence, keep it classy with summer-inspired hues.
