So, with there being such a predominant trend for horizontal stripes, what is a girl to do? Let's embrace them together in a way that will be flattering and fun.
Here are 4 tips to help you find and wear stripes with confidence:
1. Stay Solid - When the majority of the piece is a single color, it will give the overall effect of being a solid... and no one is afraid of wearing solids, right?
2. Start Small - You don't have to grab the brightest, boldest top in the store. Start with small, wide spaced stripes and see how you like them.
3. Placement Is Everything - When it comes to horizontal stripes, placement is the key. You want a slimmer waist, bust or hips? Dark horizontal stripes, placed in these areas, will make them appear smaller.
4. Attract Attention - Your outfit isn't just that one piece. Add attention grabbing jewelry to draw the eye where you want it. Shinny or bold pieces do the trick very well.
