Show Your Stripe

If a pant with a racing stripe down the side seems a little ahead of your fashion speed, think again. A vertical stripe in a contrasting color can elongate legs and make you look taller and slimmer. Avoid the obvious (white shirt to match the white stripe) and pair your color-blocked trousers with your favorite patterned blouse instead. Even if you’re a fashion rookie, this combo will make you look like a pro.

  1. Sometimes too many stripes appears too overwhelming for petites. But one doesn’t want to wear a striped blouse with striped pants. However, a striped dress whether the style or not is correct for body type, may work very well. Suits in neutral colors with pinstripes can be good pieces of clothing because one can wear the suit pieces either together or as separates to expand your work wardrobe. Although vertical lines in clothing may be created by stripes, sometimes vertical lines can also be created by seam lines in clothing that run up and down. fashion details, such as a print fabric or trim applied vertically to a garment, can create the illusion of vertical stripes. Although very slender runway models and very tall women can often get away with wearing horizontal stripes, short women will look better in clothing that emphasizes vertical lines.

    My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this
    is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
