Stripes are seriously so much fun to wear, however they can be tough to pull off. So today, I wanted to share some tips on how you can wear them and look fab!
1. Vertical Stripes vs Horizontal Stripes
Studies have been done around the concept of stripes and it has been found that horizontal stripes create the illusion of height. So if you want to look taller, horizontal stripes are the way to go.
Vertical stripes have always been known to be slimming, so if that is what you are looking for, vertical stripes are for you!
2. Pairing stripes
For most people, stripes can be a bold choice so I would suggest pairing them with other basic pieces. Denim and stripes look so good together, so they are always a great way to go! Some people love being bold, so pairing a striped piece with other patterned items can be fun!
You can also choose a colour in your striped piece and highlight it by throwing on a bag or shoes of the same colour.
3. Layering, Layering, Layering
Stripes can be really fun to layer with! A striped dress shirt, like the one I'm wearing, can easily be changed up by throwing a sweater over it and rolling up the sleeves to let the stripes peak through! Stripes can create a nice little accent to your look, so letting them just peak out is a great way to jazz up an outfit.
Do you have any ideas about wearing stripes?? I'd love to hear them!
