How to Wear Stripes

Bringing back the stripes.

One of my favourite pattern- stripes. It's definitely a staple in my closet, and it should be yours too. Horizontal, vertical, fine or wide- finding the stripe that works for you is a major key in getting your look right. 

Here are two tips for finding your stripes...
  1. If you'd like to elongate your silhouette, wear verticle stripes and long skinny stripes.
  2. There's this saying that horizontal stripes make you look "wider". To mitigate this and create a balanced illusion, a good equation to follow for strip placement is 10% of the darker colour and 90% of the lighter.
