While we love the classic look of stripes, the naked truth is that stripes can make the area they sit on look shorter and wider. So we have to be a little more careful about how we wear stripes.
Here is the skinny:
  • Avoid putting horizontal stripes across the larger parts of your body.
  • The wider the stripe, the wider and shorter the area will appear.
  • The higher the contrast in color, the more dramatic the widening effect.
  • You can minimize a stripe’s widening effect by mixing with vertical design elements.

Rosie Huntington Whiteley just gets it, she chose to wear a strapless striped jumpsuit with glam hair. The close fit up top pairs well with the flare down below.

Miley Cyrus chose to break up her striped look with a little skin showing, the playful Mickey Mouse crop top balances out her look.

Out always chic and stylist Celebrity Style GIRL face Olivia Palermo, paired her stripes with a tuxedo jacket and bright blue pumps. This look is absolutely flawless. Checkout my take on a full on stripe look.
