How To Wear Stripes

In Fashion, Outfit of the day by wR23Fs2Sqi19 Comments

Stripes are a timeless fashion classic that will never go out of style. And this striped pullover is seriously the comfiest sweater I’ve picked up this year. I love the mix of stripes and the hi-lo hem. It’s light enough to wear into the summer and perfect for those cooler nights.

How To Wear Stripes

I know stripes can be a tricky pattern to wear because they can highlight certain areas of your body and make them look wider. But that doesn’t mean you should avoid them. The trick is to pick the right type of pattern. Diagonal and vertical stripes are great for elongating and lengthening your body whereas horizontal stripes will stretch your body width wise and make you appear wider.

Placement is key! If you want to slim down or minimize an area on your body then vertical lines are a good choice. However, you’ll want to avoid horizontal lines on any larger areas of your body (i.e chest area and hips) as this will make them appear more voluminous.
