May 6th, 2014- Black and White Stripes

I know black and white stripes can be a little intimidating. They’re super bold, the make a statement and can be a little difficult to wear sometimes. I know many people fear stripes, because they think horizontal stripes might make them look wider, which just isn’t true. When done right, most stripes can be very figure flattering and anyone can pull them off. For beginners and those nervous about trying stripes for the first time, try a pinstripe and work your way up to a wider stripe. Pinstripes are perfect for the work environment as they aren’t as bold. Also stick to black and white stripes when starting out, as it’s a classic look and can be paired with everything. As you get more confident, you can work your way up to other colour combinations. Stripes are also a great starting point for when you’re ready to experiment with mixing prints, I’m totally in love with florals and stripes at the moment.
