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.
