Find the stripes that work for YOUR shape
Thick or thin, vertical or zig-zag, this season’s biggest trend can be worn in multiple ways. But with so many rules and regulations, how do you find one that suits your figure? Follow our guide to being the best in stripes, here.
If you’re… pear
Horizontal stripes on the top half of your body are the way to go. Vertical lines are better for your lower half.
If you’re… hourglass
Luckily for you, you can pick and choose your stripe. But stay away from loose-fitting items. Instead, emphasise a narrow waistline with cinched dresses and tops that focus on the midsection.
If you’re… petite
Go with skinny, vertical lines. Pinstripes are great as they elongate and complement your figure.
If you’re… apple
Find items with stripes that run in multiple directions. They create a narrowing illusion and will give you a slimmed-down look.
