Stripes are key for summer …however, they can be tricky. You don’t want them to make you look too wide, which can happen if you don’t plan them strategically. This amazing dress is a good example of how horizontal stripes can work (even if you are curvy like me!)
First off, the dress is flared which helps camouflage any imperfections below the waist you may want to hide. If it were a more body conscious shape, then it could add the illusion of width. Second, the stripes themselves vary in thickness which creates a texture that is less harsh than repeating stripes of the same width. Finally, the color of the stripes are a bit faded which make them a little more subtle and again less drastic. This dress is perfect for summer days where all you want to do is stay cool, feel casual, and look cute.
Until next time, xoxo.
