Pulling Off Stripes Like A Boss: 101

Pulling Off Stripes Like A Boss: 101

Welcome to your crash course in all things stripes! No question, this print is notorious for being tricky to pull off. But, let us tell you, it doesn’t have to be so! Here, some things to consider when choosing the right stripes for you…

  1. Go for a silhouette that shows off your curves. Stripes can make you look wider, so show off your figure in something more fitted.
  2. Be strategic about stripe placement. Darker stripes at the waist and hips can accentuate or create an hourglass shape—if you’re going for a little extra va-va-voom.
  3. Consider stripe width. Thin stripes are subtler and, generally, easier to pull off. Thicker stripes tend to overwhelm. A mix of the two can be the perfect combo.
  4. Choose what makes you feel amazing! These are tricks you can use if you’re struggling with this trend—ultimately, it’s up to you decide what “comfort” means to you.
