Have you ever been told not to wear stripes because they’ll make you look bigger?
That’s not always true.
Look at me in stripes. See how tiny I look?
OK, I look especially tiny because I’m standing against this giant 200 to 300-year-old incredible sycamore tree in Simsbury CT, but there are ways to wear stripes and look smaller without having to stand in front of a giant tree.
One example is when your bottom is wider than your top half.
That’s when you should consider wearing horizontal stripes on top. It’s a great way to trick the eye and make your bottom look more in proportion to your top.
Note: Try not to buy too many stripe tops. They can be addictive and like everything else in life, too much of a good thing isn’t always good. I’ve seen enough closets to know that’s a fact.
Having worked with so many women who were tired of being frustrated trying to figure out what to wear for their shape, age, and size, I have developed many ways to create a fabulous and flattering wardrobe for my clients. The end result is an improved self-image, and far more self-esteem and confidence.
Use the tips in this guide, so that you too can like what you see in the mirror and smile at your reflection.
I remember when I learned what did and didn’t look good on me, I felt incredibly empowered as I could now choose what to wear in an informed and stylish manner. I stopped wasting money on the wrong clothes, standing in front of my closet getting frustrated trying to figure out what to wear, and always feeling less than the other women in the room. I hated those feelings, and now have made it my mission to show other women that they can love how they look and feel when they always know what to wear and no longer feel they don’t look their best.
I want to share with you the big difference just a few changes can make for you and why you should know them.
