Although they have become a classic spring and summer wardrobe staple, stripes are experiencing an extra-huge resurgence in popularity this season, which is why they are my pick as trend of the week.
As a personal stylist, I’ve had many of my clients tell me that they are afraid to wear stripes, that all stripes will make you appear wider and heavier. So, is this true? I’m happy to report that no, this isn’t true, and I’m going to give you three simple tips on how to wear your stripes with great success!
So remember color, size and pattern. And to avoid looking larger, do not wear stripes with vividly contrasting colors or stripes that are even and wide. As you can see, stripes are indeed a trend for everybody. So get to it, get out there and earn your stripes!
