Bringing back the stripes.
One of my favourite patterns is stripes. It’s definitely a staple in my closet, and it should be yours too. Horizontal, vertical, fine or wide- finding the stripe that works for you is a major key to getting your look right.
Here are two tips for finding your stripes…
- If you’d like to elongate your silhouette, wear verticle stripes and long skinny stripes.
- There’s this saying that horizontal stripes make you look “wider”. To mitigate this and create a balanced illusion, a good equation to follow for strip placement is 10% darker colour and 90% lighter colour.
There you have it, I hope this gave you some tips on how to find your stripes. I found this top at a local thrift store and it’s one of my best thrift ever. I have worn this top 100s of times and for every occasion.
