How to wear stripes: tips for using stripes to your advantage…

– Wear WIDE, HORIZONTAL STRIPES in areas where you would like to look more VOLUPTUOUS: for example for those of you with narrow shoulders, small busts or classic pear-shapes, jackets, blouses or jumpers with wide, horizontal stripes are perfect for you.

– Viceversa, wear THIN, VERTICAL STRIPES in areas where you would like to give the illusion of looking SLIMMER, for example if your lower half is wider than your top half, opt for vertical striped trousers or skirts.

How to wear stripes: here are the trends of 2016

– PAIR DIFFERENT KINDS OF STRIPES TOGETHER: in the past it was frowned upon to wear two different kinds of stripes at once (e.g. thin narrow stripes, coloured stripes and a mix of colours etc). Nowadays this rule has been completely abolished and the catwalks are proof of this… so go ahead and start pairing different kinds of stripes together at the same time!

– THE STRIPED SUIT: one huge trend right now is that of the striped suit, comprised of a matching jacket and trousers. Why not? An alternative pinstripe!

– THE NAVY/BLACK AND WHITE STRIPED JUMPER: AN ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE: A globally-renowned classic, to be worn with a long skirt, a pair of high-waisted trousers, or culottes. So simple but so effective!!
