I mentioned stripes yesterday because of Paris Fashion Week, but stripes are also huge for spring this season. I really love this look, and the trick is to make sure that your stripes flow in a direction that flatters your shape. They can really work wonders in the optical illusion department if you get them right.
- To minimize hips, look for dresses with horizontal stripes on the bodice, and a solid-color skirt.
ASOS, Iska Stripe Top Dress $60.35
- To streamline your torso, go for vertical stripes up top, and horizontal stripes below.
Net-a-Porter, Maje Striped Jersey Minidress $170
- To make broad shoulders look narrower, opt for stripes that start just above your chest.
- And, finally, to create womanly curves, there’s nothing like a few well-placed diagonal stripes to get the job done.
