If you like horizontal stripes better than vertical for any reason, go ahead but chuck thick stripes or color block patterns. Rather, opt for something simple with thin stripes. Or just go for the safe option – ‘vertical’. There’s a better chance of not going wrong with vertical stripes than horizontal. When wearing vertical stripes, be sure to go for a dress or blouse that fits you properly. Ill-fitted stripes clothing can make you look big.

Pair Stripes with Neutral Shades

I love stripes, as you can see! When wearing striped blouse, pullover or a skirt, pair it with something dark for a classic chic look. Avoid pairing stripes clothing with anything as that would draw too much attention to the wrong areas. Rather wear striped top with a plain skirt or jeans; that will draw attention to your upper body and will also make you look slim.


Accentuate Your Waist

Whether it’s vertical or horizontal stripes I wear, one trick that always works for me is to draw the attention to my waist. To do that, I opt for stripes clothing designed to accentuate the waist area. I also go for dresses and tops that are tighter at the top and freely frills as it goes low. This trick makes my waist look tiny and amazing. Another option that works every time is to add a slim belt to highlight my waist area. I’ve seen this work for a lot of plus size women too. So, don’t be afraid o try this awesome trick.


Highlight Your Neckline

When wearing stripes, go for a dress or top that highlights your collarbone. A ‘tube’ dress or tube top works best in this scenario. But in my experience, something with thin straps should work just fine. This trick also helps draw attention away from the body and to the collarbone area. Slightly revealing neckline also adds a hint of sexiness to the look.
