Stripes are for everyone. That’s right, we said it. Forget that tired fashion myth that wearing horizontal stripes is a fashion no-no—it’s just not true. No matter what kind of curves you have, there’s a stripe out there that suits you. So we say: have fun with this preppy print & reclaim stripes for you. Here are three examples how:
Small Horizontal Stripes = Perfect for Busty
We’re throwing out the old (false) belief that horizontal stripes make you look wider along your bustline & midsection. In fact, smaller-scale horizontal stripes can have a slimming effect! The trick? Look for garments that are structured and more fitted to the body—like knit tees.
Stylist Tip: Try a knit tee that has a lower scoop neckline. Not only will the neckline elongate your silhouette, but showing a little bit of skin around your collarbone is always flattering.
Bold Stripes = Perfect for Straight Figure
Wish you had a more voluptuous backside? If you wear thick, bold stripes on a body-con or fitted skirt, the stripes give the illusion of wrapping around your body—therefore giving you more curves & shape. Who doesn’t want that?
Stylist Tip: Try a high-waisted skirt style & tuck in your blouse or shirt. A simple tuck will define your waist and create a sleek look.
Abstract Stripes = Perfect for All Curves
If you’re ready to take stripes to a whole new figure-flattering level, look for a dress or skirt that has stripes that vary in direction. This optical illusion conceals imperfections & ultimately makes you look more balanced—especially when diagonal stripes gather near your natural curves.
