It’s inescapable. Stripes are everywhere this spring! Boat neck tops to make Coco Chanel proud. Striped canvas totes with a decidedly nautical feel. And, most prevalent… truly flattering horizontal stripes in dresses for work and play.
Take a quick tour through your favorite boutique or online retailer. You’ll find them in every length, shape, and color combination.
Horizontal stripes, however, are generally not forgiving on even the best of figures. And these ship-shape dresses all look so adorable on the hangar. But, in the dressing room? Ahh… that’s another story. So, how can the average woman wear this trend?
The key is to choose stripes that are strategically placed. Here are three great examples of stripes that will flatter almost every figure!
